PayPal Palace

I use PayPal as part of my business, as a way to invoice clients, a convenience for them as well as for me. So when I recently saw the headline in an email from California Home + Design, featuring PayPal's (former) CEO's home - it got my attention.  Mainly because I wasn't expecting to see the home of a PayPal CEO.  However, upon looking further I was intrigued by the elegant and sophisticated interior design of a tech entrepreneur's  home, designed by Shane Reilly founder of Decorati.  The 10,000 square foot home in San Francisco belongs to Peter Thiel, who not only is a former PayPal CEO but was also an early investor in Facebook, and currently president of Clarium Capital, a hedge fund dedicated to supporting the next frontier of technology.  His home is a place of refuge, but also the site of private events in which he has used to host parties for up to 200 people.

The house was originally two side-by-side residences that were combined by a prior owner and has two dining rooms.

The living room comfortably seats 8-12 guests and can be reconfigured for speaking events.

Love this fun guest room (with wallpaper by Marcie Bronkar).

The sunny master suite with citrus colored walls and pale shades of blue and gray, definitely a place of refuge.

The roof top deck with stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge!
