MARCY RUSS – OWNER / OUTSIDE SALES

Marcy Russ believes design can change lives. ”It wakes us up, fuels our passion for the environments we inhabit, and provides a livelihood for artisans who create products we love.”

As owner of Blended Blue and self-described design addict, Marcy opened her showroom to introduce the beauty and craftsmanship of certain product designers to our market, and to respond to a need she saw for more performance-oriented lines. Specifically targeting product designers that were not previously represented in the Minneapolis area, Marcy curated a line package that is synergistic and smart. “These lines are innovative, and they seem to want to be together. Most of them have cross-over capabilities, able to perform in both residential and commercial or hospitality applications. We want the rich, residential comforts in a home, but the performance of a commercial setting, or visa-versa. That’s what Blended Blue aims to provide.”

Offering unique insights and a professional eye, she and her team collaborate with designers, engaging projects using a mixture of strategy, product knowledge, design know-how and instinct reared on years of experience. “We’re so lucky to get to do what we do. The design world is evolving so quickly right now, and to be on the front end of it, bringing innovative products to our market and working with the fabulous designers in this community, it’s just incredibly, beautifully lucky.

JILL GANNON – INSIDE / OUTSIDE SALES

Jill Gannon comes to Blended Blue with a life-long passion for design. Having earned her Interior Design degree from North Dakota State University, she pursued a variety of work experiences to fully explore the industry. Residential clients will appreciate her keen sense of color, honed during her work with designer Monica Hart. Commercial designers will appreciate her understanding of the need for speed, and how to best manage the process for a commercial project, from her work with Mutchler Bartram Architects. Jill likes to keep her design focus fresh, keeping an eye on new products as they emerge, and particularly looking out for color shifts in how we put things together. Most of all, Jill brings a happy vibe with her wherever she goes – and it permeates her work with Blended Blue. This makes her a great fit at Blended Blue, since part of it’s mission is joy in design. Jill loves working in such an open and up-beat work environment, and appreciates the talented designers that walk through the door every day.
