As a lifelong student of classic design and a well-known interior designer, Gil Walsh is passionate about her work. Known for her extraordinary eye for design, color, and texture, she is a master of expressing her clients’ personal styles through their homes. From private residences, yachts, and country clubs to corporate headquarters and elegant resort hotels, Gil and her team have brought a unique sense of place to distinguished interiors from coast to coast.
Gil’s interior design education stems from her earlier education in fashion design. While attending Chatham University in Pittsburgh, she designed all the sets and costumes for an avant-garde production of a play written by Pablo Picasso. Creating the sets struck a passionate chord within her, and she sought out the next steps to begin her career in interior design. It was a three-dimensional world that combined her love of fashion, art, and architecture. Her first job was with Irvin & Company in Cleveland, the largest interior design firm between Chicago and New York. She was commissioned for her first big design project, as well as working on Arnold Palmer’s private home, and his pavilion at the Laurel Valley Country Club.
In 2007, Gil made the bold decision to strike out on her own. Her company has successfully evolved into a substantial design firm, noted not only for exquisitely detailed work but also the extraordinary diversity of its projects. Her pride in sharing her knowledge and experience inspired her book, “Gil Walsh Interiors, A Case For Color”, published in 2016.
