A FRESH TAKE ON TRADITION IN NEW ORLEANS

In an early 1900’s shotgun (which reminds me of the historic houses in Cabbagetown Atlanta), interior designer Sherry Shirah returned to her hometown roots to design a New Orleans home that straddled Old and New World with a mix of curated period furniture and refreshing modern additions. Shirah carefully retained the integrity of the home’s old architecture while bringing some contemporary pieces to the home like those fabulous blue velvet bucket chairs you can spy on the right in the living room above. See the rest of this sweet ‘new Southern style’ bungalow below!

I adore the clean lines of the canopy bed in the master bedroom. It’s such a great way to bring grandeur to a small bedroom!
