Rachel launched BasicGrey over fourteen years ago as a surface design company, and as it’s owner, she knows a thing or two about pushing the ticket rather than simply following a trend. Inspired by her crazy, hectic and colorful life, her sweet husband and four fabulous children, Rachel loves to mix things up with unique color palettes applied to bold prints and patterns – eclectic representations of her eclectic world.
