The basis for my design experience began in college where the interior architecture department was an integral part of the architecture and the landscape architecture departments.  Here I learned the benefits of considering the whole, from the outdoor space to the architecture to the interior spaces and details.

After graduating, I worked in the San Francisco area for ten years in architecture and interior design firms.  My main focus at that time was office design and space planning, which is still a portion of my business.

In 1990, my husband and I moved back up to the northwest, to Snohomish, Washington, where we bought a 1917 farmhouse and began our adventure of creating a home.  We raised two wonderful children and our home changed as our needs changed.

I have been helping other people and families in the design of their homes for years now.  I would love to help you with yours!

I loved working with Peg. She was able to quickly sift through all the muddled ideas I had running through my head from years of dreaming of my remodel and propose a design I felt very excited about. She taught me things about design, found well-priced similar materials to the ones I liked that were crazy expensive, and worked with the cabinet maker and general contractor on some specialized requests.

She made the whole experience exceptional for me...and I'm still enjoying it every day!

Our c. 1950 rambler has required significant remodeling and updating since we purchased it in 1995. Although we have done several projects over the years, we are most pleased with the last two projects designed by Peg Cox Design.

She created beautiful, comfortable spaces for us.

She designed the remodel of our Living and Dining areas about 5 years ago and, more recently, we gutted and added to the Guest and Master Bathrooms on the main floor..

The design concept and final plans were based on our input and her expertise. She consulted with us on product selection (fixtures, lighting, finish materials, etcetera.) and created the detailed product list and construction drawings used by the contractors. She also designed the cabinets. She was very thorough and the remodel proceeded smoothly. The final product reflects our tastes and the way we live beautifully.

We worked with Peg last year when we bought a 1960’s split level that was in desperate need of TLC. Peg started out by interviewing us to help clarify our lifestyle and design preferences. She provided as-built and construction drawings for the builder, and helped select finishes (tile, counters, carpet, cabinets, trim and paint). She worked closely with the builder to design minor interior structural changes that had major design impact.

She was respectful of our time and budget. She already had a great working relationship with our builder and cabinet maker, which kept the project flowing smoothly. She is professional and organized. She will provide as much or as little guidance as you want. She came up with several creative, budget-friendly design ideas that really made our home special.

Peg helped us transform a time-worn, drab fixer-upper into a fresh, modern, light-filled and comfortable home. We would definitely work with her again, and would recommend her to friends and family.

We have used Peg throughout several major remodels to our home over 15 years, a remodel to our cabin and a refresh to rental property. Each project has required different skills--design, construction oversight, selection of finishes, staging, etc. Peg's approach is to fit our spaces to our lifestyle, making room for comfortable alone time or entertaining 30 for dinner, working with a family of five and adjusting our space to better suit empty nesting. As we move into retirement and another home, we will need Peg to get that space perfect for us.
