The French Mix

Designer and owner of The French Mix, Jennifer DiCerbo believes the best way to create the perfect design is through collaboration. She always encourages her clients to share their aesthetic to which she then adds her professional expertise. Her store on Lee Lane in Historic Downtown Covington reflects her sophisticated chic style. The inventory is a mix of traditional and contemporary items with custom furnishings, lighting, rugs, custom window treatments, cribs, custom bedding and original art.
How would you describe the “perfect” piece of furniture? It’s interesting and unique and complements the rest of space without feeling contrived. It just works perfectly in the space.
What is one of the more unique items you carry? Original art and custom pieces. Custom can be more expensive but I feel it also has more impact and longevity if you get something made in the exact size and in a custom finish that brings the entire room together. Plus, most likely it will be a one-of-a -kind item that no one else will have it!
What was the best design advice anyone gave you? Get an expert/designer to help you, they are a resource and can save you from making costly mistakes. Invest in good quality pieces and be patient and wait for an order vs. giving into instant gratification.
How would you summarize your design philosophy? Don’t keep anything you don’t enjoy just because someone gave it to you. Your home should be the most relaxing space that brings you peace and tranquility.
