As a 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 then worked in Virginia for a 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, but her recent pivot towards E-Design has given her a fresh burst of excitement about being able to help people create their own dream environments wherever they live. As a mother and wife, Ariane's home is where she is most herself, most at ease, and where she recharges her creative batteries. She can't wait to create this same oasis for her clients.. She currently lives in New Canaan, Connecticut with her husband, their two children & three dogs.

Tanya is a New Canaan native and grew up surrounded by exquisite antiques and accessories, the knowledge of which she carries with her to help inform her design choices. Her education in art history at Washington College allowed her to further hone her skills. Once in New York, she segued into a professional career in event planning and luxury catering, making her a whiz at creating environments where people can entertain and socialize with ease. The overlap between event planning and home design is ever present and has helped her excel at both. She cleverly mixes heirlooms with new items and loves to focus on the finishing touches. Her childhood travels to visit family took her from Mexico to Spain and beyond and afforded her an admiration and passion for beautiful homes and architecture. Happiest behind the scenes, she is our social development maven and excited to get the word out about La French Goose. Tanya lives in New Canaan, Connecticut with her husband, their two children & dog, Buddy.
