Stephen Petty believes that the use of green and sustainable materials is a great way to achieve the most efficient use of every dollar a client spends. Refurbishing existing furniture and accents to match a proposed design is an excellent way to stretch a design budget, and Stephen has developed the expertise to effectively accomplish this. Whether creating inspiring antique pieces from modern furnishings, or altering the personality of an interior space through the use of simple colors and textures, Stephen finds ways to utilize existing materials or cost effective alternatives that offer beautiful results along with exceptional value. Blending ultimate creative passion with practical design solutions is the hallmark of GP Interior Design, and the experience and knowledge Stephen Petty brings to each and every project ensures the highest level of client satisfaction.
From the moment Stephen Petty sketched his first design as a local architect in Newport Beach over 20 years ago, he has dedicated himself to perfecting the craft of interior design. This process has taken him on a journey across the country, constantly learning new techniques and methods while building an impressive list of accomplishments as an interior designer and construction manager. Stephen’s pursuits eventually brought him to the fashion center of New York, where he would spend over a decade designing and creating beautiful interior spaces for some of the world’s most demanding clients. In 2013, Stephen returned home to Southern California and formed GP Interior Design, bringing his wealth of experience and knowledge full circle back to the place where it all started for him.
Stephen honed his skills in the fast-paced and demanding world of New York retail interior design, where the ability to strictly adhere to budgets and timelines means the difference between success and failure. Attention to detail, flexibility, and a complete set of management tools became Stephen’s trademark, and he used these traits to excel in a world where the expectation of the client is absolute perfection. Stephen brings this legacy of no-nonsense efficiency and the highest standards of quality to every project GP Interior Design is involved with. He is unrelenting in his pursuit to delight each and every client regardless of the size or complexity of the project at hand.
