An accomplished home and event stylist, Krayl Funch’s passion for living well is evident in everything she touches. Raised in Connecticut, just a short 30 minute train ride into New York City, and currently residing in Tampa Bay, she easily blends New England sophistication with Southern hospitality.
Frequently drawing inspiration from nature and her travels, Krayl values well designed environments that allow us to connect with ourselves, others and our surroundings; some of her favorite projects include seasonally inspired entranceway design, creating a tablescape to linger over and detail oriented interiors.
