Interieurs Francine Gardner and Giveaway

Today I am introducing a most talented woman many of us already know, Francine Gardner.
Francine in Tibet
 She has a fabulous shop  in New York City at  228 w 58th Street called Interieurs. The design studio was established by Francine Gardner in 2001 to answer inquiries from clients interested in interpreting the Intérieurs' showroom aesthetic into their own homes. The design studio now offers complete interior design services to clients from around the globe, designing interiors that artfully blend the present with the past to create elegant, soulful living environments.
  Francine's inspiration for the Interieurs Showroom and Design Studio is derived from her interest in world travel and cultures, art, architecture, literature and nature. From the pattern found on a seashell to the beauty of the towns and nature of her native South of France, Francine draws upon her experiences, observations and discoveries to inform her design process and aesthetic. A selection of these inspirations is presented in this photo gallery, providing insight into the palette from which she develops her unique vision for modern, soulful living.She also has a most interesting blog Art de Vivre. Be sure to visit you will love it!

Created from his workshop in the countryside of western France, Jose Esteves lighting creations are truly a balance between art and function.

Jose Esteves is a native of Bragance, Portugal, a region that serves as the core inspiration of his work.

 Handcrafted in steel-mesh and metal, Esteves' pieces are elegant and expressive works that simultaneously evoke modernity and the antique.
Interieurs exclusively offers the Jose Esteves Lighting Collection, in addition to commissioning an annual limited edition series in which each light is a unique work of art constructed from objects Jose finds both precious and infused with meaning.
