Gracie is from Baton Rouge, Louisana. She was raised in the south and grew up drawing floor plans as a child and frequently day dreaming and redecorating her room. Once she was in college she took an interior design summer program in Italy and was completely convinced at that point that interior design was the profession for her.
Gabi Favale grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado in a small town where her family owns an Italian restaurant. Her interior design spark was ignited from a young age when her mother would pull her out of class to go shopping for home accessories and decorative items.
