About Us

Based in San Francisco Bay Area, The Patnam Design Group is a boutique interior design firm that specializes in custom design, offering the full range of interior architecture and interior decorating services. The over arching goal is to create elegant spaces that reflect client needs, interpreting their wishes, mindful of their budget and helping them arrive at a design solution that match their lifestyles.

The principle, Divya Patnam, has several years of experience working in the industry. Her background in both architecture and interior design brings a unique combination of skills that allows for creative matching of interior and architecture elements. Divya is an avid student of classical architecture and its use of mathematical proportions with modernist twist-purity of form and expression of materials as the core philosophy. Over the years, regular excursions to art galleries, museums and buildings of architectural distinction formed Divya's design sensibilities. She has developed a strong sense of scale, balance and color, along with an appreciation for clean lines and natural materials. Divya takes inspiration from the likes of Christian Liaigre whose designs have integrity and a pervasive calmness that reflect an instinctive aversion to the clamor of modern life. She believes that every project should show deep connections with the tradition of each location while paying attention detail and not handicapping of function over decoration.

Divya's modern interiors never venture far from classic references, she prides herself on speaking first to the clients' needs, and then to creating sleek, sumptuous and serene surroundings with a profound commitment to environmental issues.
