Gwenn brings her creative talents to the JLS Design team assisting with designs and invaluable on our large scale installs.
At a young age, Gwenn recognized that style plays an important role in making a house a home, as she watched her parents meticulously choose color coordinated furniture, artwork and accessories for their new residence. The lesson she took from their example is that style, color and design are silent communicators. Combined, they are our personal visual art that create a story, bring balance, and give a glimpse into the world we invite others into.
Gwenn’s love for interiors, organization and personal styling began over 30 years ago when she was a Personal Shopper with For Your Image at Dayton’s in Minneapolis Minnesota. She has since held numerous sales and management positions ranging from national retailers and custom closet design to a small men’s boutiques specializing in custom shirts and suiting. She has a true passion for cultivating style, room by room. Her ultimate goal is to ensure all her clients see the value in the investment of consulting. By listening to clients wants and needs, she always takes budget into consideration and together they cultivate spaces that bring joy, function and effortless expression of who they are. She has a great sense for pairing items clients already own with supplemental pieces to create a personal space.
Gwenn’s motto is “The best homes evolve over time, layered with the things we love, designed for the way we live.”
In her spare time, Gwenn enjoys traveling with her husband John and spending time with family, especially being “Nana” to her grandson and twin granddaughters.
