This charming French Quarter home was previously two separate houses
joined together in the 1900's. This joined structure had been an art gallery
in the 70's, and later offices for a hotel consortium. Bringing it back to a
beautiful residential space was the challenge.

Renovation was already underway, so my contribution was first creating
with color. All the wood surfaces in the home required change - floors, trim,
and stairwell. The impressive circular stairway was bronzed and the walls
were washed in layers of color with gold leaf undertones at my request.

The furnishings include luxurious upholstery accented with 19th century
antiques to enhance this very French Vieux Carre' maison

My clients Bill and Deborah Armington are gracious contributors to many
charity events and wanted a home for entertaining.

I created a design plan to include formal, elegant easy spaces with focal
points to move guests through the French doors to the garden walled
within the courtyard and back again for epicurean delights. Party over,
lights out, always serenity.
