Frances is one of Slifer Designs’ best kept secrets. Over the last 13 years, Frances has quietly developed a loyal clientele with her relaxed demeanor and amazing ability to interpret clients’ personal style and bring it to life in their homes. Following graduation from the Design Institute of San Diego, Frances worked with Kitchen Expo and Interior Design Imports. But, her heart remained in Colorado so she joined the Slifer Designs team where she quickly rose to the top with her attention to detail and yet understated approach. Her expertise in architecture and art from her international travels allows her to mix styles with fluidity and grace.
