We recently moved into a new house and needed guidance to help us furnish and decorate the whole house. We have never used a designer before and we were worried about the cost of such a large project. We selected France based on her portfolio but also because she really understood our needs. The entire effort has been collaborative and she really listened to us and helped us find functional but stylish items that meets the needs of our family with young kids, while keeping us within budget in all selections. She has helped us prioritize investment pieces while finding great value pieces for other items without compromising on quality. She has been able to find us items that we didn’t know we needed or wanted and that fill our space perfectly. We have enjoyed working with France thus far and look forward to finishing our space!

We had a wonderful experience working France. She was professional, and helped us push past our comfort zone to create a beautiful space. We are looking forwarding over working with France again on Moreno projects.

France worked with us to decorate our formal living room which is in the center of our open concept floor plan. This was our first time working with a designer and wanted someone to create a “wow” impact and France delivered! We wanted a designer to help push us outside our comfort zone and bring a modern and fresh look to our traditional home. France is a very thoughtful designer, a great listener and extremely efficient – from custom rugs, draperies, upholstery, pillows and furniture the project was finished in less than two months. The end result is stunning and we could not be happier with our new chic living room. We highly recommend France and would use her again for other decorating needs.

France from Renaissance is great to work with. She assisted us with the redesign of 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. She knows the latest trends and is very well connected in the community with contractors, wholesalers and other retailers! I would certainly recommend!

How many times have you looked at your home and asked where do I even begin? Three years ago, we purchased a vacation home in San Diego and had no idea how to approach the space. France Lefebvre of Renaissance Interior Designer of Chicago was able to transform my barren 2,100 square foot house into a sophisticated beach oasis. Although I was living in Chicago, France made selecting everything from floor plans to furniture a no brainer. France went above and beyond in implementing my vision for a relaxed, yet refined interior while also broadening my esthetic palate. Her ability to hone in on the coastal San Diego ambiance was spot on. Not to mention, France’s business style is extremely professional and detailed oriented, exactly the skillset you should be looking for when tackling a project of this magnitude. In addition, France was very cognizant of my budget concerns. Now, every time we walk into our San Diego retreat, it feels like home and we are so proud to have friends and family soak in the beauty of the unique interior that France has created.

I would highly recommend France Lefebvre of Renaissance Interior Designer of Chicago to anyone looking to hire a designer who truly listens to her clients and delivers in every way.

I recently completed redecorating my family room with France and I couldn’t be happier with the results! France started by asking me how we use our family room, what pieces I would really like to keep and if I had a color theme in mind. What I knew was that our couch of 20+ years had to go as well as a couple of other chairs but I was open to her suggestions and it was just really important to me that it flowed with the rest of our home, that the furniture was comfortable and that I stayed as close to my budget as possible.

We have a very private backyard which is beautiful in the three best seasons in the Chicago area and removing sheers on our french doors from the family room to outside and putting very creative valances that contained simple ferns on them helped bring the inside in! She worked with the existing rug I had and the room was beautifully transformed to a “wonderful oasis of calm and serenity” keeping the fabrics on the new couches neutral with pops of color from the pillows she designed for it, recovering three other chairs I kept, painting the entire room and adding a couple of new and interesting lamps and pictures.

As we were finishing the room, she asked me if I would be open to replacing my window treatment in our adjoining living room with something that would be more simple and look better to which I wholeheartedly agreed and the simple change there really made both rooms flow together effortlessly.

In addition to France’s talent for decorating, she is also a perfectionist ensuring that details are taken care. She returned to my home after everything had been completed, because the skirts on the new couches had not “hung out” and were slightly wrinkled. She brought her steamer over and steamed the skirts for me as it is very important to her that her clients are happy and that anything she associates her name with is done to perfection!

France was a pleasure to work with. She was always prompt, professional and accommodating. We used her help in decorating our master bedroom. She picked fabrics that were a bit outside my traditional comfort zone, but I love the completed look. I am in my early 30’s, but my tastes can sometimes appear to be older. France gave my bedroom a fresher and younger feel while still keeping it traditional. She took into account my budget and my need to use pieces I already had. Overall, I am very happy with her work and would use her again.

Over the period of about a year, France Lefebvre, of Renaissance Interior Design, was extremely professional as we worked to update approximately 6 rooms in our home. She had the ability to quickly understand my style and preferences, and she brought in wonderful materials and products that totally transformed each room. For each project, France provided a detailed plan and kept me apprised of the progress against the plan so there were no surprises. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and contacts in the industry who offer every possible service and support. France manages the process from start to finish – and if there are issues with the product, she is always there to make it right! She is honest and forthright and it is obvious that her job is to make the client happy. I was very comfortable with her style, really enjoyed working with her and I am extremely happy with the end result! I will definitely call France again when I need any decorating help in the future.

France has been able to add wonderful touches to her home. She took time to understand our style and was right on the mark. What I appreciate most however is how she stands by her products and recommendations. We’ve had an instance where a suppliers product was less than stellar, and unusual, and she has gone above and beyond to ensure we are happy and get replacement products. She’s easy to work with and responsive. I would highly recommend her service for big and small projects.
