Frances is named for Great Aunt Frances, a witty, wise woman who was petite in stature, big on style and always ready for a good time. Aunt Frances stood a mere 5’3″ tall but packed a punch. And, she was the real-life sister-in-law of Lucille.
A style maven, Frances’ good taste was reflected in her fashion as well as in the architecture of her home. With her husband, Frances lived in a clean-lined, mid-century modern home in the desert foothills of Arizona. In the mid-20th century, their architecture and landscape choices were cutting edge.
Frances loved dogs and had many over the years, always Airedale terriers and always named either Shadow or Hobo. Her fur babies were her children and each one benefited from her big-hearted love.
Many of the features in Frances the building were inspired by Frances the woman: small spaces big on style; bright, zippy decor; a big-hearted welcome and place for your fur babies; and a garden-like rooftop deck that is sure to delight.
