HEATHER FRENCH, ASID
Heather French is the co-founder, principal, and lead designer of French & French Interiors. She enjoys customizing designs for her clients based on their current spaces and needs, and specializes in being able to distill their desires into a beautiful, comfortable, and functional aesthetic.
Heather has always been interested in the layout and flow of people’s homes, and ways that design translates into living styles (especially among different cultures). She recognizes the importance of how personal space can affect mental energy, and is grateful for the multiple chances she had as a child to design her own bedroom as she began honing her aesthetic.
During college, Heather remembers her mother telling her that “you’re already halfway through; you might as well stick it out.” As part of French & French today, Heather employs this same “put one foot in front of the other” mentality to overcome challenges without worrying or overthinking — she looks for next steps, best decisions, and innovative solutions that keep things moving forward.
After working for years with other design firms, Heather decided to build French & French Interiors. Along with her husband Matt, she began defining their unique aesthetic that honors a space’s history, culture, and purpose while serving its current intention.
Heather loves creating fun, integrated spaces for her clients that bring life and purpose to a family’s home. For her, interior design is about more than just “pretty things” — well-thought-out spaces should solve a problem and allow for shared human experiences on a deeper level. Heather strives to understand her client’s desired purpose for a space, and then create beautiful, meaningful areas that provide families a soulful, fun, nurturing place to live.
