GailGray Home Interior Designer, Carolyn Gagnon, Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania
Carolyn Gagnon – Owner & Interior Designer

A native of coastal Connecticut, Carolyn moved to Pennsylvania in her early 20s and has called the Lehigh Valley home ever since. A love of traveling and seeing firsthand how people live in different cultures has fueled her love of architecture and home design. “Nothing is as personal as someone’s home, the space they live, love and escape from everyday life! Every home tells a different story. Helping people to genuinely love their home has been a lifelong passion of mine!”

Carolyn got her start in the design industry at Sherwin Williams, after which she worked doing space planning and design for both residential and commercial projects. In 2006 Carolyn received her degree from Sheffield School of Interior Design, and in 2010 she joined the GailGray team where she has held almost every position in the store. In 2022 Carolyn took the helm as owner and is excited to work alongside her amazing team to continue growing the GailGray tradition of being the Valley’s leading Home Furnishings and Design Store.
