Erica Peale Design

I came to my career in design by way of an unlikely path. After graduating from the Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University, I went on to hold advertising, web development, and management consulting positions. Project management, adhering to budgets, and interpreting clients needs proved to be the perfect training ground for my career in design. Now I use those skills on behalf of my clients as I manage their projects and create beautiful and functional interiors that fit their everyday lives.

After building and designing our own home, I worked with a notable home builder helping clients select paint colors, lighting, and plumbing fixtures. Blending my personal experiences with my professional background, proved to be a pivotal time for me to focus on my own style and design aesthetic. This put me on the path to launch Erica Peale Design in 2011.

My approach is a true collaboration between designer and client, understanding priorities and lifestyle, and providing my clients with a personal, and functional design individual to their family.

Providing full-service interior design, from concept to completion - I approach each project uniquely. With thoughtful input from clients, the scope can range from accessories and finishing touches to complete a space to full renovations and new construction. With completed projects in Virginia, Washington D.C., Maryland, as well as Connecticut, California, Florida, and New York my approach blends quality with budget saving pieces to help you obtain your design vision in a beautiful, efficient, and affordable way.

I look forward to working with you!


Erica is no joke, top notch! We moved into a beautiful new home and that same afternoon realized our couch just did not do it justice. I contacted Erica via Houzz that same day. We met at the end of that same week. She looked, listened, asked questions, and turned around a proposal that met our needs and recognized our priorities. COVID did not put the slightest delay in Erica's process!! We met virtually and decisions were made quickly. Furniture lay outs, furniture sourcing, rug selections, curtains, and a just-right stair runner have added beauty and comfort to our home. I know I can reach out to her at any time and get a smart reply. To have a partner that truly get's IT is a won...
