Designer Jeannie Fraise loves to travel, les belles arts and interior design. She’s also a big fan of colorful, graphic home textiles and accessories used for creating unique, playful and comfortable living spaces. During the past seven years, under the label Lotus Bleu, she has worked on over forty interior design projects, home renovation and furniture reupholstery. Each time she achieved spectacular results and therefore her work has been included in the San Francisco Decorator’s Showcase and gained regional and national recognition.
Jeannie’s boutique, located in the center of Hayes Valley, showcases a beautiful selection of home accessories, textiles, lighting items and toys gathered from France and Southeast Asia, chosen carefully for their rich colors, bold patterns, modern prints, handmade details and luxurious fabrics. It also provides reupholstered vintage furniture updated with exclusive fabrics brought from Europe. Jeannie Fraise got her MA and PhD in Art History at Stanford University, and she also worked in the curatorial department of Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum and the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford.
At Lotus Bleu she also sponsored a fundraiser for East Meets West’s Village of Hope, a center for disadvantage and orphaned children in Vietnam that gives them a chance to a properly education, practical training and support. Note cards are still available at Lotus Bleu for the benefit of EMW (www.eastmeetswest.org).
