“I’ve taken the coldness out of what can often be a clinical-looking room and created a visually inspiring environment. Any motivation we can get while taking care of ourselves is vital.” – Fran Keenan
The Gym/Wellness Room
“We painted stripes on the floor at a 45-degree angle to infuse a little energy.” Linen panels surround the room, adding softness and creating depth behind the art.
A pair of sofas from LEE Industries in a cinnamon velvet offer a place to lounge post-workout. The designer threaded touches of cobalt throughout on upholstery trims, pillow details, and the ottoman. In addition to contemporary exercise equipment, Fran collected vintage medicine balls and weights. “I love finding worn and weathered things to layer in with modern functionality.”
Fran commissioned the black-and-white pieces above the sofas from artist Emily Morgan Brown. The charcoal and egg tempera butterfly wings are a subtle nod to the health room being a place for transformation.
The designer pieced together vinyls to create a patchwork ottoman. “It’s practical—you can sit on it or use it to stretch muscle groups, and it’s ok if it gets damp.” Fran threaded touches of cobalt throughout on upholstery trims, pillow details, and the ottoman. In addition to contemporary exercise equipment, Fran collected vintage medicine balls and weights. “I love finding worn and weathered things to layer in with modern functionality.”
Fran papered spa walls with reproductions of the Periodic Table. “It’s a wink toward wellness; we need elements like oxygen and magnesium to survive and thrive.” In a nod to her fashion background, she was inspired by a Rick Owens leather jacket for the valance leading to the bathroom area. “We draped four hides and left the edges raw so it didn’t feel precious.”
The team from Lush Life Home & Garden in Atlanta brought beautiful plantings of white phalaenopsis orchids to the wellness room and spa. Mounds of moss standing above the container rim ground the flower spikes and willow branches add more vertical interest. The flowers will last for weeks with little maintenance, allowing more time in the gym to be focused on self-care.
