Penelope Jones is the creative inspiration and principal designer of Penelope Jones Design Inc. The studio is based mid peninsula in the San Francisco - Bay Area, Northern California, with projects in California, New Zealand and beyond.
Penelope Jones Design was established in 2006 and incorporated in 2015, after I spent a number of years working for distinguished interior design & architecture firms both in San Francisco and New Zealand.
I have worked on a wide range of projects spanning both sides of the pacific, including two years working on the Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, the renovation of a 1924 picture palace and many residential homes. My diverse design background results in visually striking and highly functional interiors that reflect each clients unique project.
I prefer to create projects that are reflections of who my clients are, tempered by my eye for color, texture & proportion. My skill is creating cohesive interiors that feel fresh, clean, interesting and with a joie de vivre.
Originally from New Zealand, I moved to San Francisco in 2004. My american husband and I are now domiciled in our tiny 1920′s fixer in Emerald Hills with our two children and two dogs and not nearly enough storage space.
My education includes a Bachelor of Design Degree in Interior Architecture and Design from Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, a thirst for travel & cultural explorations and a love of new & old ideas and finding something to inspire me every day.
