FOUNDER, PRINCIPAL DESIGNER
Growing up in a small beach town in Southern California, Soleil “Sunny” Maxwell spent most of her time beside the ocean or attending art openings with her mother, nurturing interests in color, composition, and individuality.
After graduating from the University of Arizona and settling in Palo Alto, Soleil worked in marketing and brand communications for 15 years. During this chapter of her career, she solidified her love of design, honed her creative process, and developed key project management skills that would enhance her future work.
In 2015, after attending design school and completing an apprenticeship with her mentor, Marjie Pitchon – a talented local designer with over 50 years of experience – Soleil started Maxwell Design.
Her belief that there is a solution to every challenge – not only in the design world, but also in life – allows Soleil to skillfully manage projects and explore creative ideas, bringing new life into existing homes. And more often than not, the bumps in the road lead to an even better outcome than the original plan.
When she's not creating something completely unique for one of her valued clients, Soleil can be found in the company of her husband and children, traveling, attending concerts, hiking, or practicing yoga.
