About Us

California Modern best describes Lori Gilder’s style. The architectural interior designer is known for her clean, architectural lines and relaxed, classically contemporary interiors. Lori believes in keeping her palette somewhat neutral to allow for the exploration of the textural abundance of materials, finishes and fabrics where they integrate seamlessly with the surrounding architecture and landscape. She collaborates closely with her clients to create uniquely customized and personalized interiors.

Gilder’s passion for kitchen and bath design led to her role as Co-Founder of the Kitchen Design Network, an online resource site devoted to kitchen lifestyle, design, sources and professional directory. Gilder and her KDN partner Rebecca Reynolds also collaborated on the 2015 Design Panel for DXV Luxury. In 2016, the duo designed the 2016 Traditional Home Napa Valley Showhouse kitchen and were also awarded Viking Kitchen Designers of the Year for 2016.

Traditional Home, Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, Distinctive Kitchens, Beautiful Kitchens, California Homes and Rue Magazine have featured Lori Gilder’s designs. Her award-winning firm specializes in custom interior design solutions for homes and vacation properties throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.
