Local Design Experts
John McClain
Designer & Owner of Gilded Home

John McClain is an interior designer who has turned his lifetime passion for transforming typical houses into beautiful homes into an opportunity to do the same for others. After appearing on HGTV in 2010, John’s personality and design perspective were visible to a larger audience, and he was soon designing homes all across the country. 

Soon thereafter, John joined a prestigious interior and furniture design firm in Los Angeles, CA. While working in LA, John gained an appreciation for the sumptuous & elegant Hollywood design style while collaborating on LA homes - including several celebrity clients. Here, John also fueled his passion for furniture design and is now elated to return to Florida with his eponymous design firm John McClain Design and custom furniture showroom, GILDED HOME, both located in Winter Park Florida’s historic Hannibal Square. 

John’s design style is an eclectic mix of traditional elements fused with clean lines, elegance, and touches of glamour. A successful project involves combining the client’s needs and wishes with his natural instinct. Moreover, John’s belief that all environments can be both beautiful and attainable allow anyone to seek and find their perfect surroundings.
