New House and My New Orleans Inspiration

Exchange Place French Quarter New Orleans
I know it has been a while since I posted anything. If you saw my last post with our house listing, you know why. We ended up buying a foreclosure in our neighborhood and I'm in the process of redecorating. Which means a lot of posts to come.

In between listing our house and redoing the new one, we took a trip to New Orleans for my mom's 65th birthday. I had never been but I had an idea of it...historic buildings, antiques, jazz, etc. It did not disappoint! I was so inspired by gas lights, exposed interior brick, wrought iron railings, shutters and chandeliers dripping in crystal. It was all so dreamy!!!

I need to go back soon and take more pictures. We were too busy having fun. Here are some of my inspirations for the new house from our rental in New Orleans.

Our room for 4 nights. I love everything about this room. The exposed brick, the French doors leading out to the balcony and the washed wide plank wood floors. Look at the size of the baseboards. LOVE!

One of the bathrooms. Velvet drapes, crystal chandeliers, marble and painted brick. Dreamy!

Sitting area of one of the bedrooms. Love the mirror!

My mom's 65th birthday! This is the living room of the apartment.

Our last night. I can't wait to go back!
