A self-proclaimed “rookie” designer and builder, Sacramento-based Arthur Peychev is something of a design wunderkind. Despite having little formal training and no design degree under his belt (yet), this 22-year-old has been able to create homes with the style, detail, and panache of a seasoned pro. “I was working for an investor/house flipper on and off since I was 16,” Arthur says. “My duties ranged from finish carpentry to painting. I started practicing design by trying different color themes and different styles/finishes on the houses I was working on. After seeing great results from my work through the buyers, the investor gave me an opportunity to redesign and remodel a mid-century modern home that he purchased to flip.” After the success of his first design project, Arthur began designing homes in earnest and made the pursuit his primary vocation.
This particular project, a modern home in Roseville, CA, was booked as a spec project, built to sell. “My main focuses were to stay within a very limited budget that the investor provided, maximize the sense of space, bring in as much natural light as I possibly could, give it a subtle bungalow look, and contemporize it to appeal to the potential buyer.” An open, sun-drenched space filled with color, this mission was most certainly accomplished!
