About the Founder

Gabriela Gargano first discovered her love of interiors at the age of 14 with her first job at an interior design boutique, where she worked directly for the owner and buyer for 6 years. After graduating from college, she spent more than a decade at Goldman Sachs, as a sales trader and relationship manager, before founding Grisoro Designs in 2015. During that time, she simultaneously grew her passion of interior design through real estate investing, renovation, and staging of her properties in Manhattan.  Gabriela’s unique background in finance, real estate investing and design allows her to apply the same rigor, result-oriented focus and fiduciary responsibility to the world of interiors. Since founding the company, Gabriela has built a reputation of creating not only beautiful homes, but doing so with seamless execution. The result is a long list of clients she is now fortunate enough to call her close friends.

Gabriela holds a B.A. in Art History, Business Economics and Hispanic Studies from Brown University and takes continuing education courses at multiple schools in New York.
