Gretchen Herb grew up in Weatherford, just outside of Fort Worth, Texas. Her design education started with flipping through her mother's Southern Living magazines as a child and continued when she attended Baylor University. She graduated in 2011 with her degree in Interior Design. Gretchen has had many different jobs since then including project management for million dollar construction projects in Sundance Square, designing interiors for public and private schools across the state of Texas, and most recently, designing and renovating homes for Magnolia Homes and HGTV'S Fixer Upper. When she's not obsessing over textiles and tile, she splits her time between painting, sewing, camping, and time with her husband, Adam and their two girls, Emerson and Margot.
