Tres Mckinney and Peggy Del Rosario...Two Amazing Talents!

Tres Mckinney Design is a full service design firm specializing in residential interiors based in San Francisco.  Tres has been designing interiors for over 20 years.  Working with an extensive vocabulary of stylistic design approaches, Tres is known for designing timeless, gracious interiors all executed with great attention to detail.

Enjoy a sampling  of her beautiful work...


We've posted the image of this lovely powder room before.  That is how Tres and I met.  She e-mailed   me about her very talented friend, Peggy Del Rosario.  Peggy is an incredibly talented artist.

They've worked together on severl design projects. She did the painted fiish on the vanity. 


Tres told me that Peggy had actually sent her to Providence Ltd Design because it was one of her favorite sites.  Thank-you so much Peggy!!!

Trey and her husband  visited their friend Peggy, this last Christmas in Portland Oregon. Andrew is a professional architectural and interiors photographer so he took plenty of pictures during their visit.

Peggy uses her home as a design laboratory so there is always something new and intriguing.  She also is a master at accessorizing and creating stunning vignettes. If that is not enough - she also paints on canvas....

My heart started pounding when I saw these.  She is so talented.  She's been dubbed one of the best painters in the Pacific Northwet.  Scroll slowly.  You don't want to miss the incredible details in her home...
