La Belle Maison's owner and designer, Pierrette Tanner, was born in Montreal to a magician and his assistant, and was raised in Las Vegas. She began performing with her father at age 4, and was designing costumes by the age of 10.
The creative experience of designing costumes evolved into an interest in and study of, proportion, scale and form, which led her to architecture. In 2000, Pierrette obtained a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, and spent the next 16 years of her career assisting in the architectural development of shopping centers, apartments, and office complexes. During that time, her skills for color and space planning were recognized by her employers, and her career transition from building exteriors, to designing interiors, began. She worked with residential interiors for several years before founding La Belle Maison in 2016.
With an architect's eye, and artistic creativity, Pierrette incorporates the experiences of her travels, her unique design history, and her clients' personalities, tastes and vision when creating sophisticated and elegant spaces.
By integrating new furnishings with existing treasures, she will create the sanctuary you dreamed of coming home to every day.
