At first, Jimmy Rupp didn’t know that his life was destined to be full of art and design. He showed potential at a young age, helping his mother with her floor arrangements in her ventures as a small shop owner. Years later, Jimmy found himself moving to Oklahoma City, opening a highly fashionable home furnishing store and design studio, Interior Gilt, in historic Uptown. Jimmy’s style in a few words is colorful, eclectic, glamorous, full of clean lines with the combination of antique inspired and vintage pieces. He and his husband Tommy are proud fathers to two wonderful children.
