Meet the Founder

Hi! My name is Shay, founder and designer for bunglo. I began my entrepreneurship journey at the age of 5 by selling my coloring book pages on the playground for a quarter. In third grade, I turned my hemp necklace hobby into a side hustle and started a photography business at the age of 18. I have a passion for creative business and living life like art!

"The idea that we can create a sacred space for ourselves to feel free, create and find happiness is my mission for bunglo."

Painting Rainbows Since 1993

" I started with puffy paint sweatshirts, animal drawings and doodling all over everything." 

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, I received a BFA from the University of Michigan and shortly after graduating, moved to southern Spain to teach english. I spent my 20's traveling as a documentary photographer and artist.

It All Started...

With  my  love  for  home  decor,  I  began  experimenting  with  pattern  design  and  learned  how  to  sew  my  first  pillow  from  watching  a  DIY  tutorial  on  youtube  at  the  age  of  25!  (Yes,  this  is  why  I  started  with  pillows!)  I  sent  my  first  few  samples  to  Anthropologie,  Bloomingdales  and  Neiman  Marcus  and  received  orders  that  grew  bunglo  almost  overnight!

When I was little, I would rearrange my room constantly. I'd create new floor plans with to-scale drawings of my furniture and spend days trying to find the perfect bedding in my parents mail order catalog stacks.

"I'm a big believer in what we surround ourselves in is what we become. I combine the principles of feng shui and color therapy into all of my patterns and believe colors can change our moods. I'm a personal fan of neutral furniture, white walls and adobe everything. I love mid century modern classic pieces, mixing vintage and global finds, mix-matching bedding to create a cozy sleep and changing pillows for the seasons."

There's something special about using cloth napkins, filling your walls with inspirational art and choosing to stay in on a Friday to be present rather than staying out late. I find inspiration in the small things and hope my work makes your home feel beautiful, just like you!
