Patricia Gray, award-winning interior designer and global aesthete.

When Patricia Gray designed a residence for John Travolta (“JT,” she calls him), “he was lovely to work for, and wanted a place to escape to.” Gray, a regular designer to the stars, Feng Shui practitioner and a Vancouver native, was nominated “2014 Designer of the Year,” has numerous “First Place Northwest Design Awards,” and her firm was named one of the “Top 3 Design Firms in Canada.”

Gray’s mother was a bespoke dressmaker in Vancouver in the 1960’s. “I rushed home from school, excited to see the Jackie-O-style dresses and to help drape and sew.” Years later, while Gray was studying at the Parsons School of Design in Paris, one of her instructors, a curator at Versailles, used her ring of skeleton keys, some nine-inches-long, to unlock doors few had entered. After seeing the magnificent interiors they led to, Gray’s fate as a designer was sealed.
