ABOUT KRAYL

Krayl Funch has drawn inspiration from nature and her surroundings all of her life. After growing up in Stamford, Connecticut, earning a bachelor’s degree in finance and economics at the University of Delaware, she moved to New Hope, Pennsylvania, and developed a strong following in the community as a personal gardener and event planner, honing her design aesthetic.

In 2002, Krayl began working at Waterford Wedgwood, traveling the US speaking about tabletop design, entertaining and the value of quality products in our lives. During this time she developed a talent for designing store and stage displays for major national retail stores.  In 2009, she established An Appealing Plan, a lifestyle brand combining her passion for entertaining, gardening, DIY, travel and design.

“On a daily basis it’s about designing welcoming entranceways, and beautifully set tables” she says, “but on a higher level lifestyle design is about providing services and information to time-challenged homemakers allowing them to realize their lifestyle goals while giving them the freedom to focus on other responsibilities such as career , family and friends.”

Krayl has appeared in print publications such as BUCK’S Life Magazine, Tableware Today, HFN, Tampa Bay METRO Magazine, Impart Magazine, Pete Magazine, The St. Petersburg Times and Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine.  Her work has been featured in videos as an eHow Contributer as well as television segments including ABC Action News, Good Day Tampa Bay, 10Connects 5:00 o’clock News.
