Gretchen’s mantra is, “Laugh More; Gripe Less; Ignore Critics; Say Yes; Order Dessert; Love Life ®.”
She has traveled the world, “looking and hoping always to see – really see.” She is convinced that is what makes for great design, “knowledge of what exists, along with a wide open view of it – coupled with the ability to interpret it cleverly.”
Gretchen sells to over 1000 retail outlets and has five of her own signature stores – Naples, Jupiter, Edgartown, Nantucket and Southampton.
Gretchen currently lives in Bronxville, New York, with her husband, a cat, a dog and many birds. A zoo lover, she created a tiny one for herself. She is the proud mother of a beyond fabulous daughter, who is all grown up and a Marketing Director.
