Hi. I’m Gretchen Schauffler, the founder of DIP—Design Is Personal. Design Is Personal began with a personal journey that became our company mantra. My move from Puerto Rico to Portland, Oregon in the 1980s could have resulted in a clash of color and culture in many ways. Instead, it became an incredibly intuitive personal experience that came with a powerful realization: We can outgrow design trends or color schemes, but never who we truly are. And why should we? 

CHIC COLORFUL DIY COMFORT FOR YOUR HOME

Feeling foreign in a new land, I set out to personalize my home with my own design history, using colors, shapes, and objects that felt comforting to me, to build my environment in simple ways. Chic, colorful, comfort is something you can’t afford to live without. These three words on their own mean different things. Together they helped me rise above trends and circumstances to become deeply confident and satisfied with my own personal style. Then, something amazing happened. When others saw me do this, they were inspired to do the same.

My realization became our company mantra: We will outgrow trends or color schemes, but not who we truly are. Therefore let’s be true to ourselves and inspire others to do the same. Design Is Personal—Something different to everyone. Only what it means to you matters. 

AND OF COURSE, OUR MANTRA WOULD MEAN NOTHING IF WE DIDN’T LIVE IT

Our products are timeless, cosmic by nature—easy makeovers that transcend fads. We’d love to see you rise above trends, and we truly want to help you along your path. So sign up for our newsletter, where we’ll be sharing ideas and inspiration not only about how to make design personal, but also the true power of personal design. Look us up on social media, where we share our thoughts and our imagination daily. We strongly feel that our products speak for themselves, but our reviews speak louder than anything we could say. Check out our online reviews at Target, Wayfair, and Walmart. And on the subject of products, we’ve got some game-changing ones on the way. 

Stop by our store and see what’s new. We’re DIP. We can outgrow trends and color schemes, but never who we truly are. This is what makes design personal, something to everyone. Our mission is to empower consumers to confidently express their design history with chic colorful DIY comfort.
