"I'm a smart-mouthed, problem-solving, instant gratification junkie!"
A seasoned (former) 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. 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, 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 Stamford, Connecticut with her husband, their two children & three dogs.

Kelly joined La French Goose in 2020 and has become increasingly valuable with each new project. A native of New Canaan and alumnus of The University of Richmond (where she met her husband!), Kelly is tasked with creating order and processes into the daily life at LFG and she infuses her kindness and can-do attitude into everything she touches. Whether checking in on job sites, visiting with clients, managing vendors and timelines or keeping "the goose" on track, her efficiency and flexibility are perfectly suited to the frenetic and evolving nature of the design biz, When she's not working you can find her at home in Fairfield with her husband, three children and two dogs.
