Pennington Design Co.

Pennington Design Co. is a full service design firm with broad capabilities from decorating to remodels and new construction. Avoiding trends and taking cues from a range of styles gives each of our projects a personal and unique feeling. We believe in the process of layering a space and creating essential moments that don’t distract from the overall balance. Our goal is always to inspire our clients to broaden their point of view and sense of value investing in their environment.

“Good design is really about a complete composition, not a particular style. I treat every project as an opportunity to write a new story with a consistent core. I have values I carry with me into each project, but never take myself too seriously that I can't be flexible and open to new narratives.”
- Alice Pennington / Founder and Principal Designer

Client Feedback

"We met with Alice two years ago to help with our dream home. We were immediately impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail. She really listened to what we wanted but was also able to take us out of our comfort zone to create a functional, well designed space. From selections to install, we are absolutely in love with what she did!"


“I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Alice Pennington early in the development of my high-rise condominium. As a result, I was able to take advantage of Pennington Design Co.’s turnkey service and it has been a true blessing. Alice’s hands on approach allows for throttling of products and services to meet the unique needs and budgets of her clients. In my case, I wanted a broad range of design, construction and furnishing services requiring significant initiative on her part and she and her team have produced great results”.


“We are thrilled to have worked with Alice Pennington on the design of our home. Her broad scope included room layout, lighting design and furniture plans, all of which were completed with the larger picture in mind. Alice pushed us out of our comfort zone with pops of color and unique details that we could not be more pleased with. She is a wonderful resource of knowledge, has a wealth of experience, and always keeps the clients wishes at heart. Each project she completes is given the time, attention, and fresh perspective it requires and deserves. We recommend working with Alice and look forward to more projects with her in the future!”


"Alice is not only extremely talented and creative, but is a pleasure to work with. Our project is still in progress, but the outlook is amazing!"
