Minneapolis, MN


For two years, these homeowners lived in Paris—surrounded by sidewalk cafes, fashion boutiques, and world-class cuisine. They fell in love with city living, which is why upon their move back to the Twin Cities they purchased a downtown condo in Minneapolis. LiLu Interiors enhanced the 4,000 square feet of contemporary architecture by weaving together an eclectic tapestry of timeless heirloom pieces with fashionable finishes. A seamless contrast of textures, wood grain, glossy sheen, plaster, and metallic meet you at the front door. Pops of color and the incorporation of more traditional furniture pieces provide a subtle nod to those special years lived across the ocean.
