Hi, my name is Gabrielle. Most people call me Gabe. I started Cotton Seed in the fall of 2013. It was both scary and exciting all at the same time. For as along as I can remember, all I've ever wanted to do was create beautiful spaces that people enjoyed being in.
My approach to the design process tends to be laid back and easy going. I start by listening to a client to learn about their requests and personal tastes and incorporate that with my style and experience to create a space specific to them. My style tends to start with a clean timeless design that is bright and modern. I then add in all the little details by mixing my favorite materials and styles that help make for a comfortable relaxed space that begs to be lived in.
Cotton Seed is a residential interior design firm based in the western suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. We assist clients with a wide range of design challenges including finish selections, space planning, collaborating with architects & builders, decorating, and finding the perfect custom pieces to finish off a space. I want to help make your house a home.
I also refinish and re-image vintage and antique furniture. The love of taking something old and worn out doesn't just apply to a house.
As a residential interior designer, I love to focus on remodel projects. Working with something that is worn out and outdated and turning it into a space that is both functional and beautiful is definitely a passion. I can assist with projects from start to finish including working with architects and builders during the design concept phase to decorating the space once construction is completed.
Don't need a remodel but maybe just a refresh, I'm still happy to help. I work with clients to help them define their desired style so they can have a space they look forward to spending time in everyday.
