Meet Katelyn Gilmour, President & Principal Designer of KBG Design Inc., a full-service Architectural Interior Design firm.

A California Bay-Area native, Katelyn grew up in Almaden, a suburb of South San Jose, CA, and later earned her Bachelor's of Arts degree in interior design in Newport Beach, CA. After working amongst a few boutique design firms serving high-profile clients in South Orange County for ~ten years, Katelyn relocated back to her hometown to pursue family and to expand her design career and brand.

Katelyn's passion for interior design starts with having a transparent relationship with her clients. She loves learning and understanding how clients live - like, really live - in order to design how they will thrive within their new homes in the future. This is a personal process and Katelyn has first-hand experience living through numerous projects herself with her own family as well as walking alongside countless past clients through their home journey and her empathy for this process runs deep. Katelyn actively listens to each client's need and does her very best to achieve their wish-lists and so much more. t's one thing to design a beautiful space on paper, but something entirely different to ensure these designs are implemented.  


Katelyn and the KBG Design Inc. team convey their designs through detailed CAD drawings, hand sketching, applicable concept images, and 3D renderings. And because surprises on-site are inevitable, Katelyn's creative problem-solving abilities are quick and effective, which in turn keeps the project's timeline on-track.
