SPI was started in 2004 by designers Sarah Shetter and Alison Palevsky. It is founded on the ideal that modernism can be successfully combined with comfort and livability.
The two designers, who met as undergraduates at the University of Southern California, share a design aesthetic that mixes the California lifestyle with both ancient and modern traditions. Ms. Palevsky received training from UCLA's interior design/architecture program. Ms. Shetter holds a Master of Science degree in interior design from the Pratt Institute in New York.
SPI oversees all phases of a project, including demolition/remodel plans, color choices, custom furnishings and light fixtures, specialized wall and floor finishing, and art selection and installation. With a clear focus on the requirements of the client, the two partners bring professionalism and clarity to the complex task of designing interior spaces for individual needs. Together, they create environments of lasting quality.
