Sandy Lee Welsh, Founder & Principal Designer

Gallois Interiors is a boutique interior design studio by The Gallois Group. Our designs are refined yet relaxed, and at the intersection of old world form and modern function: where juxtaposition, classicism, and comfort are the cornerstones of our aesthetic. We are partial to natural materials (as elements from the earth will be forever timeless) and aim to transcend boundaries, enrich the senses, and elevate everyday living — simply put, a beautiful home.

Welsh is a multidisciplinary whose career spans across interior design, operations, scaling technology companies, and creative production for brand and product design; a sensible and big-picture visionary with an acute sensitivity to artistic details. An affinity for architectural heritage formed her into a forever student of the home and a sense of place. Her dream home would be described as imperfect yet masterful with a timeless quiet.

Gallois (gal·ah·wáh) is the French translation of her family name, and the Gallois ethos is rooted in a transformative sabbatical in the South of France; a cathartic experience that evolved her artistic eye, design language, and forever changed her perspective of what it means to live simply and wholeheartedly.

Welsh resides in Santa Barbara with her beloved husband and their equally sweet and spunky rescue pups, Pip and Phoebe. She is fueled by the mountains and sea, and finds traveling and the seasons to be her greatest sources of adventure and inspiration.
