Inside a New Orleans home built in the 1860’s, a young family takes a fresh and energizing direction with a large dose of color while keeping some traditional Southern vernacular including uses of wallpaper, lacquer, and a beautiful set of bedding in the master bedroom. As you may already know, I love finding new examples of modern Southern style, and this home definitely shows a unique mix of periods, art, and color in the decorating. See the rest of this Big Easy home tour below!
To help the sectional from overpowering the family room, the same pattern was used on the upholstery and wall covering which allows the large piece fade into the architecture of the room. I love the black and white pattern paired with pops of color from the mix of throw pillows and blue velvet armchair (which looks mid-century, perhaps).
The statement color in this library nook comes in the form of a deep brown lacquer that sets this space off from the rest of the room. The floor-to-ceiling bring windows bring in so much stunning light and make those walls shine!
While this may be the first time you’ve seen monogramming on TS, the simplicity of this blue and white (and red) bedroom feels very serene. The pattern on the curtains below also brings a very contemporary touch to the room.
The exterior of the home shows the classic New Orleans architecture with tall windows, shutters, and columns – one of a row of “sister” houses built by the architect Henry Howard. How do you like the fresh family decorating in this Southern home?
