• Story of The French Flat

    The French Flat's name was inspired by a painting excursion Cathy and Keri took to France with the Art Students' League of Denver. Cathy and husband Will owned retail stores, including full-service florists, French and country antiques, and fabulous hand-dyed fabrics, and more. The "flat" is refers to a smallish living space, a matte finish of paint, or a crate of plants....


    Now, we are a design and custom painting service (personalized paintings, murals, portraits; fine art and antique sales, and color consultation). We now offer premier art lessons, French "Atelier" style workshops with artists working as mentors with students toward an artistic venture. We draw inspiration from artists from old to modern masters.

    Invite the romance of French style and art into your home with our antiques, botanicals and paintings!

    "Keri is a true treasure. She took my daughter's larger than life mural idea and made it come alive on her bedroom wall. Not only is the artwork exactly what we were looking for, but Keri ensured Addie was part of the process the entire way through.

    Keri is passionate about what she does and adores sharing that with her clients. I have now used Keri on three different occasions to paint wall murals and have been thrilled with the results each time."
