• 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 now create fabulous hand-dyed fabrics, and more. The "flat" refers to a smallish Euro-living space...or a matte finish of paint...or a crate of plants....

     

    Now, we are a design and custom painting service, as well as garden antique dealer. Find our booth (Belleview isle) at Colorado Antique Gallery (www.coloradoantiquegallery.com). We 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 world to modern masters.

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

    Testimonials from people for whom I've painted

    Renee:

    "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.

    Boy's Colorado Sports Teams

    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."

    Teen's Reading Nook--Before

    "My daughter was involved in every phase of the process: selecting the image, painting the mural, and decorating it afterward.

    Teen's Reading Nook--After

    Keri’s collaboration on this project gave us not only this fun mural, but my daughter learned to mix color and paint a mural!"

    On-Vacation Powder Room

    Ed:

    “Keri is a hard worker, determined, and committed to the projects she chooses to accept. We are constantly complimented on her mural.”
