"I'm a problem-solving, instant gratification junkie!"
A (former) seasoned event planner for luxury clients around the world, Ariane (a.k.a. La French Goose) has loved coming up with unexpected ways to use rooms and spaces for as long as she can remember. Born in Paris and raised in Connecticut, she rearranges furniture in hotel rooms and is admittedly obsessed with lighting and dimmers. With family spread across the globe from Texas to Singapore, she has seen many homes and lifestyles in the places she's visited, always paying close attention to details.
After graduating from Colby College, her first job landed her in the NY showroom of F. Schumacher & Co. where she caught the official design bug. She later worked in Virginia for an interior designer who gave her additional insight into how to make spaces beautiful while maximizing the layout for easy interaction between guests. Ariane has renovated everything from a Manhattan apartment to a classic Cape in Darien and a ranch house in Stamford. She feels a fresh burst of excitement with each new project as her clients begin to envision their own dreams coming to life.
As a mother and wife, Ariane's home is where she is most herself, most at ease, and where she recharges her creative batteries. Her very favorite thing is to create this same experience for her clients. She currently lives in New Canaan, Connecticut with her husband, their two children & three dogs.
