Arica Peterson

Arica Peterson has been a successful interior designer for nearly a decade, working with companies including International Furniture, Thomasville, Henredon/Ralph Lauren, and Modern Studio Furnishings.


Arica's modern approach to both new construction and remodels alike have allowed fresh concepts and new spirits to move into vast range of completed projects in Arica Design's diverse portfolio. Projects range from designs for the celebrity lounges at the recent Billboard Music Awards, Golden Globes, BET Music Awards and the TS Alliance Comedy for a Cure, as well as many medical and dental offices and client homes.


Whether she is working in an independent capacity or with established practices, Arica puts 100% of her experience and talent into each job and each client vision. "I want my designs to look unique and eclectic with clean lines and simple forms," Arica says. "The space should reflect the client's personality without looking contrived."


Arica has been recognized for her work in The Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot, The Laguna Beach Independent and SPACE Magazine.

I have been a client of Arica’s for 7 years and have relied upon her advice and guidance since my husband and I furnished our first house. Since then we have built a new house, and on each new project, with Arica’s help, we have been able to build upon what we already have, and still come up with a fresh, new, updated look.

Arica is the expert and has a vast amount of resources upon which she draws; she has a wealth of creative ideas. I rely on her to come up with a variety of options to present to us. She is able to vary styles as well as price points so that we can choose from a "good - better - best" standpoint.

"Arica Peterson is a delight! Her design vision and creativity have turned my home into a haven that I absolutely love to come home to at the end of the day. She also recommended a contractor who also turned out to be an excellent resource. I would highly recommend Arica for any design issue, whether residential or commercial."
