the lotus bleu approach
Whether refurbishing a vintage lounge chair frame in a fabulous fabric from our carefully curated collection, putting together a stunning furnishings scheme, or coordinating a highly-crafted full-scale renovation, our goal is to give your project a strong vision customized to who you are and how you live and make it a reality.
layering color, pattern and texture
We set the stage by bringing together a selection of materials to inspire a layered and dynamic design scheme: paint swatches, fabric, wallpaper and rug samples, wood and metal finishes, and more. Combining these tactile elements with inspirational images, furniture tear sheets, and room layouts, the direction of your individualized project takes shape.
finessing ideas into existence
If you're ready for a room remodel, full-scale renovation or new construction, we delve even further into our extensive library of wood, tile, stone, countertop, window treatment, and fitting and fixture samples. Moving seamlessly from customized furnishings to customized cabinetry, tile layouts, light fixtures, wall treatments, and more, our designs are brought to life in detailed elevations and floor plans meticulously rendered by hand or in AutoCAD.

"One of the things I appreciate so much in working with Jeannie is her ability to take our fledgling ideas at the beginning of a project, translate them into concrete goals, and with her team, turn them into a reality. They made the design process for our two complex projects efficient, convenient, and effortless for us. The implementation always went smoothly and we had a "turn key" welcome into each new home. Jeannie really understands the value of creating spaces that are livable and maintainable while also being engaging and original. We especially appreciate how comfortable our children and guests are in our home and how easily the spaces Jeannie designed adapt to the ways our family grows."

"I was drawn to Jeannie’s work because of its playfulness and creativity. Jeannie and her team have helped us design a home that’s the perfect balance of peaceful, practical and fun. Their attention to detail is superb, and on top of everything, they are wonderful people.
Jeannie and her team are able to find furniture, fabric, fixtures and other items that fit perfectly with our needs and work beautifully together. The result is much better than I could ever achieve on my own. I also appreciate Jeannie’s knack for creative problem solving when tricky design challenges arise.
Furthermore, Jeannie and her team have the highest integrity. In the rare instances when they’ve made a mistake, they’ve taken responsibility for making things right. Jeannie also has been a skillful advocate for us when we engage with other professionals like contractors and architects. It’s great to know that she’s in our corner."

"Lotus Bleu Design has been a true partner to us in making sure we have a comfortable and beautiful home. We've worked with Jeannie and her team twice now, the first time on a couple of small projects in our former home and more recently on a much larger-scale effort in our new home. The Lotus Bleu team brought all the creativity, outside examples, familiarity with the design world, and good taste we expected, but they were also very attuned to what we were seeking in terms of cost, look, and comfort. Our home looks gorgeous, and is wonderfully suited to family life."
