KBG Design approaches each project with an inherent enthusiasm for all-things-design.
"I love getting to know each client and learning how they live so that I can cater my designs to enhance how they are going to live in the future." - Katelyn Gilmour
My name is Katelyn Gilmour and I am the owner and Principal Designer of KBG Design, a truly full-service interior design firm.
I pursued my studies at the prestigious Interior Design Institute in Newport Beach, CA. It was there that I received a Certificate, AA, and BA in Interior Design. Now with over 15 years of interior design experience, I suppose you could say that I am officially a 'grown-up' in my industry.
My passion for gorgeous residential interiors starts with having a transparent relationship with my clients. I love learning how they currently live so that I can design spaces and, therefore, beautiful homes that will enhance how they will thrive in the future. I listen to my clients needs and do my very best to achieve their wish lists and then some. It's one thing to design a beautiful space on paper, but something entirely different when the designs are implemented.
I convey design options with detailed CAD drawings, hand sketching, applicable concept images, and 3D renderings. The designs become clear for everyone involved: clients, general contractors, trade partners, and the city (when permitting). And because surprises on-site are inevitable, my creative problem-solving abilities are quick and effective, which in turn keeps the construction timeline on-track.
