Griffith Interiors

Indian Wells, CA

We provide interior design as well as architectural renovation and remodeling for high-end homes.  Since 1983, we’ve been transforming homes all over the United States (including the Kansas Governor’s mansion).

For the past 15 years, we've focused on Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and La Quinta in California.


We like to fill homes with a warm, casual elegance, underpinned with practicality and sound structural design.

David likes to say his designs are “south of somewhere in the world:”  Provence, Tuscany, Morocco, Asia, Brazil... the California Desert.


We favor mixing old world with contemporary, primitive and refined. Your home will look as though filled with beautiful and intriguing pieces you've collected over the years.

For a look at some of our projects, please view Our Portfolio.

David Griffith

David is an artist and a gardener, as well as an Interior Designer.  In his spare time, he can be found painting in his home studio in Indian Wells.
(View his artwork here.)


When David was 11 years old, his mother, Marjorie Griffith, gave him his grandfather’s paintbrushes, the very ones his grandfather had used to paint the beautiful and arresting artwork displayed throughout their home.

David went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in Education and his master’s in Design from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

He continued his education through travel.  His particular love for Provence over the years has brought elements of the entire Mediterranean region into his design sense.

He and Roger explore a wide range of sources in various locations to find pieces which will make your home unique.


Roger Pilley

Roger, a General Contractor, brings his architectural and building expertise to your remodeling project.  From architectural planning through to construction management, he provides a sound structural foundation for your home.

He earned degrees in both Civil Engineering and Business from the University of Kansas.  (He also performed a stint as a Medic in the U.S. Air Force.)

He has built over 1,200 homes in the Midwest and California in addition to planning and overseeing numerous structural renovations to existing homes.

Upon graduation from college, his mother gave him a Steinway.  He finds pleasure and fulfillment in filling the home with music.

David with his sense of design and Roger with his love of cooking and music, create fabulous and functional kitchens, dining rooms and great-rooms for entertaining.
