Kelly Page launched her BlueGrayGal blog in 2015 and her audience exploded, responding to her delightful images and relatable tips. She’s parlayed social media success into business partnerships with brands such as Amazon and Calico, and has appeared on “Atlanta & Company.” Chatting with Kelly reveals that her blog’s gal-pal vibe reflects an authentic extension of her personality. Peruse the site for everything from home décor ideas and organization tips to fashion and beauty advice.
What was the catalyst for BlueGrayGal.com? I started on Instagram solely as an experiment to learn more. Three days later, my kitchen was featured on one of the biggest Instagram home accounts. I’m an open book type of person. I was a duck in water with blogging! It comes naturally to me (maybe too naturally, as my husband would say… I’ll say and share everything!) There’s something dreamy about social media; my blog is a mix of pretty fantasyland imagery tied with my self-deprecating humor.
Who are some of your personal style icons? I’ve secretly held a soft spot in my heart for Grace Kelly for her class and taste. And for P!nk for her “I don’t care what you think” attitude. I think Suzanne Kasler [of Atlanta-based Suzanne Kasler Interiors] and Phoebe Howard, an interior decorator [with a home furnishings store on Peachtree Hills Avenue], are the bomb.com. Our daughter also has her own personal style so I admire her bold and eccentric air when it comes to fashion . She always says, “Mom, you’re more simple. I prefer bright and colorful.”
How long have you lived in East Cobb and what brought you here? We’ve lived in East Cobb almost
seven years, but in the Atlanta area since 2001. My husband is a Chicago transplant, and I’m originally a Florida girl. We have the best of both worlds—East Cobb can make Atlanta seem as big of a city as you’d like, or as small as you want!
What are some of your favorite East Cobb spots? We are huge fans of Seed Kitchen & Bar, Stem Wine Bar, and Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar. The same goes for Moxie Burger. My boys eat adventurous types of food—think octopuses with their heads on them, whole red snapper and sashimi. Also, you’ll likely see me cramming a ridiculous amount of furniture into my car at [T.J. Maxx] HomeGoods.
