About Us

Our Team  The Jeweled Cottage is the creation of the mother-daughter team of Ellen and Robin Bretz.  Ellen, having recently retired from Mastercard, and Robin, who has been designing kitchens and baths for the past 10 years, long dreamed of owning a business that allowed them to share their lifelong passion of decorating.  The name of the business is homage to Ellen's mother, Jewel.

Our Products  Ellen and Robin regularly travel to major tradeshows throughout the Country to select unique furniture and accessories.  The inventory is constantly updated with core furniture and decor pieces, as well as seasonal items.  If you don't see what you're looking for in our showroom, let us know ... we can usually find it for you.   

Robin specializes in designing kitchens and baths for both renovations and new construction.  Her designs have been featured in National and local publications.

Our Values  The Jeweled Cottage wants to minimize its impact on the environment as much as possible.  All our cardboard packaging material is recycled to benefit the City of Kirkwood.  Styrofoam is recycled at EPC in Earth City.  Most of our lighting in the showroom is LED to minimize energy consumption and we plan to migrate our remaining incandescent bulbs as LED technology progresses.

Above all, we value customer satisfaction and want our clients to be completely satisfied with our products.
