Tisdale and her composer husband Christopher French moved into their current home when she was around seven months pregnant, at which point the High School Musical alum dove headfirst into decorating. The talented Tisdale was well prepared for the undertaking, considering she launched her design passion project, Frenshe Interiors, last year.
Tisdale had never furnished an entire house by herself. Nonetheless, she felt up to the challenge after successfully tackling an extensive kitchen remodel with her contractor father for her previous home in Los Feliz in Los Angeles.
Aside from the fact that her new home was move-in ready, its lush foliage was what drew Tisdale in. “I was pregnant, and I feel like Jupiter was a part of picking this house because [now] she loves looking at the trees. She loves nature,” says the singer and actor. The interiors, especially the kitchen, lean a bit more streamlined and modern than Tisdale’s past dwellings (AD toured her former Hollywood Hills Spanish colonial home in 2018). However, they provided the perfect canvas, especially considering that Tisdale’s design philosophy is to always look to the home itself for inspiration. “I have a style, but I don’t stay so close to that style that it doesn’t work in a house,” she explains.
