Interiors by Lu French
From the East Coast of Florida to Los Cabos Mexico; Austin Texas to Manchester Vermont, Lu has been designing interiors and curating finishes for breathtaking oceanfront estates, country manors, urban dwellings, town home projects, yoga studios, healing arts centers and real estate offices for the better part of 25 years. Her approach runs the gamut from holistic, organic, and understated to fun, hip and colorful. The main thread Lu weaves into every design project is a peaceful zen quality that awakens the five senses and the subtle ones, resulting in that certain je ne sais quoi that clients find healing to the soul. What follows is a small but significant sampling of Lu's many design projects.
1940 S A1A Vero Beach, Florida
The largest oceanfront estate in Vero Beach, 1940 provided a broad canvas upon which to design interiors with relaxed, effortless intimacy and understated elegance. The design imperative was to highlight the fine Côte Sud architectural features of the expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces, without competing with the breathtaking ocean to river views. Lu featured gorgeous lighting by Curry and Company and Visual Comforts. Working in collaboration with their design team, Lu curated the tasteful furnishings, fine artwork and sublime area rugs in large part from the exquisite showrooms of Clive Daniel Furnishings in Boca Raton and Naples, as well as many gorgeous pieces from local Vero Beach design shops. This magnificent estate is currently offered at $29.9 Million. Learn More
Casa Bellamar, Los Cabos, Mexico
This iconic Hacienda-style oceanfront estate located on the East Cape of Los Cabos in the exclusive enclave of Playa Tortuga sits on a 1-1/2 half acre parcel with 196 feet of ocean frontage. Lu's team designed the approximately 6000 sq ft of interior living spaces in "mid-century modern meets Hacienda Style", a nod to the time-honor architectural design, spiked with a little L.A.-Circa-1963 color. The interior and exterior furnishings focus on lush shaded verandas, terraces and balconies, highlighting stunning views of the Sea of Cortez to the southeast with panoramic sunrises, moonrises and nighttime starry skies that are nothing short of spectacular.
