A California Native, Erica has a genuine connection to the vivid elements that define the California landscape. As a daughter of a collector and a builder, a solid appreciation for handcrafted, bespoke elements formed at an early age which developed into a strong passion for all things design. Whether it is architectural, landscape, culinary, floral, textile or interior design, Erica embraces it all and cultivates her own design aesthetic from the detailed elements she experiences in the world around her.
Erica's ties to the Lake Tahoe region were established early on, spending time with her family on the lake and in the Sierras over the past few decades.
Her undergraduate studies took her to Colorado where her connection to the mountains deepened, but it was her time working under Alice Waters of Chez Panisse that was truly life-shaping. A true pioneer that instilled the importance of knowing where things are made and who is making them.
Quality, sustainability, longevity. These are attributes that foster meaningful relationships.
This wisdom is at the core of Erica Tyler Interiors.
The name Tyler is significant as it identifies Erica's roots and her lineage. Tyler is Erica's middle name and the name of her first daughter.
Erica Tyler Interiors infuses a sophisticated sensibility into residential mountain interiors. With a passion for detailing, quality and time honored beauty, Erica's designs marry the texture of old world elegance with a decidedly modern twist.
