Patrick Printy established his Northern California design firm in 2005 after fifteen years art directing and styling in the fashion and home furnishings industries with brands such as Levi’s, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Method, and Restoration Hardware. Building on his experience in designing sets and spaces on location for lifestyle brands, he decided to turn his attention to helping clients achieve their vision for their homes.
Greatly influenced by his childhood in Arizona, his design sensibility grew out of an early appreciation for the appeal of mixing traditional designs with cultural elements, local materials, and textures. Whether designing an urban home or a farmhouse, Patrick’s signature aesthetic artfully combines the old and new into interiors that feel warm, yet modern, as well as practical, sophisticated and full of character. The architecture of a building and its surroundings combined with the lifestyle of the client guides the design process to ultimately create a home that blends harmoniously with its setting and reflects the client’s personality. It is this same thoughtful approach that directs the development of the unique, quirky, and functional touches that are a hallmark of Patrick’s spaces.
Custom designed elements are cornerstones of most projects, both architectural and furnishings. He has established long-standing relationships with a world-class team of architects, contractors, craftsmen, and workrooms. This flexible collection of expertise allows Patrick to tailor projects to the specific needs of individual clients. All of his projects share a deeply personal sensibility realized through client input, obsessive attention to detail, unexpected touches, and careful execution – all pulled together through his steady direction and personal leadership.
Patrick has developed new homes, guided renovations of old homes, and designed residential interiors as well as commercial spaces throughout the U.S. His work has been featured in Elle Décor, Elle Decoration, California Home & Design, SF Cottages & Gardens, 7x7 and DIY magazines.
