2016 Traditional Home New Orleans Showhouse – Part One

IMG_7820Today I have a big treat for you guys. Last Thursday had the opportunity to visit the 2016 Traditional Home New Orleans Showhouse. This year’s tour house was a million dollar Queen Ann Victorian built in 1895 on St.Charles Avenue one of the most prominent streets in New Orleans. Tours to the 4,000 square foot home closed yesterday but lucky for you I took lots of pictures to share. The house itself was gorgeous even before the designers got to work but now it pretty fabulous.

Actually I took so many pictures I think I’ll break the tour up into two posts…  So today we’ll start downstairs.

Foyer & Stairwell by MMR Interiors This Foyer is breathtaking and I have to say one of my favorite spaces in the house.

Living Room by Shaun Smith Home I wish I could have captured this better in a photo. This room had high gloss lacquer walls and ceilings that were so amazing. Shaun Smith was at the house and explained the process, seven coats and extensive prep work were required to achieve the look.

Parlor by Reagan Hayes, Inc.


In the parlor there was more drama on the ceiling mimicking the lines of the light fixture.


and the entire house was full of the most amazing art.

Butler’s Pantry by LCH Interiors The butler’s pantry was another favorite of mine, but who doesn’t want a pantry full of champagne and caviar?
