About Me

Hello and welcome to The Jewel Box® Home

My name is Genevieve and Jewel Box® grew out of my desire to celebrate the good things about smaller homes.  That was not always the case, for many years I desperately wanted a bigger house.  I truly believed 'Bigger is Better' and that my growing sons needed more space.  I was wrong!  The important feature of a home is not its size, but how it makes you feel. 

Slowly, I fell in love with my smaller house and began to appreciate the beauty, practicality and freedom of life in a modest home.  The Jewel Box® Home: My Life in a Smaller House is now a book where you can read the full Jewel Box® story.  I have now lived in the same small house for over 25 years and created Jewel Box® to share my decorating, entertaining and small home living tips so that you too can find happiness in your smaller home! 

The Jewel Box® Home is my passion, but family is my life.  I have been married to Rick, my husband, for 25 years and we have two sons, Richard and Marc.  Richard, my oldest, is now in medical school at Cornell University.  Marc, my youngest, is at the University of Michigan studying art and design.  In addition to my family, I also work full-time for a national publisher.
