Before her blogging career, Gabrielle was designer and art director in New York. Now she gets her creative fix seeking out, writing about, or giving away all things well designed. If she's not online, you can find her dreaming of sugary treats and doing cool things with her family.
After 8 years in New York and a stopover in Colorado, she currently lives in the French countryside where she and Ben Blair are raising Ralph, Maude, Olive, Oscar, Betty & Flora June. And eating lots of cheese.
