Who Is Lucy Dean?
Ever since she was a little girl, Lucy Dean has had an obsession with anything that is colorful and patterned. From collecting fabric scraps as a child to asking for floral bedding to making a “scarf wall” in college, she has always believed the more the merrier when it comes to color and pattern! Today, Lucy has found the perfect opportunity to turn her passion for color and pattern into a business.
As an adult, she quickly learned entertaining is not as easy as it looks. From realizing she had to wash and press her new placemats to having to use drinking glasses as vases, she grew frustrated at the challenges she faced when hosting out of her small apartment. Therefore, she set out to solve these problems in an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly way, and at last Lucy Grymes was born!
