Shop Girl: Interiéurs

Ok so I must fess up I haven’t had the time yet to start touring Manhattan shops and reporting back to you all. I’m really excited about starting this new feature, but things have been crazy here and will probably continue to be until the end of summer. So my start on it will have to wait a bit, but there is nothing stopping us from going on a virtual tour of a shop I now am dying to set foot in.


Right away the name drew me in. How could it not be perfection with that accent above the e! 


The shop was founded by interior designer and taste maker  Francine Gardner. Francine is a world traveler that sees no problem in mixing design periods, textures and scale.  She believes that interiors should not only be calming, but have the ability to reflex the home owner that will work, live and play there.


I love her use of mostly white and cream furniture with the dark accents, exposed brick and french antiques. It touches on a more masculine style of design that I don’t have in my own home (poor Jon), but truly appreciate.


The shop has a store front both in NY and California and a design studio as well where Francine is very much still involved.


Here are some examples of their work:





Since they are no actual prices listed on the site I can only assume this shop is way out of my price range, but a girl can still look. 


As if Francine didn’t seem perfect enough I then found out she has a blog! Ah she is perfect!


Are there any shops you are dying to get a sneak peek into come this fall?


Let me know!
