Apartment Therapy: Margaret & Gabe's Eclectic New Orleans Home

I'm delighted to share photos of Margaret and Gabe's Southwestern-Inspired New Orleans rental. This couple has style for miles. I mean, just look at the portrait of the two of them. They always look that good. I had fun hearing about their courtship – they met at a honky tonk in Dallas – their colorful ancestors, and their love of the Southwest, which they visit as often as they can. Their Uptown home is layered with textiles and hides and filled with vintage pieces picked up during their travel adventures. Everything has a story that they're happy to share. You can read all about their style and see a full tour of the space on Apartment Therapy. Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot:

Apartment Therapy: Olesya's Colorful Bywater Studio

Olesya’s one-bedroom studio is located in a century-old industrial rice mill in New Orleans’ Bywater neighborhood. She doesn’t have to look far to find inspiration. Two large windows offer views of her booming neighborhood to the left and the Mississippi River to the right. The building has soaring structural columns, masonry brick walls, exposed wood beams, and graffiti preserved from the riverside building’s derelict days. Her whimsical and romantic pop art paintings add color to her wide-open personal space, which gleams with polished concrete floors and white walls, appliances, and cabinets. You can read more about Olesya, her artwork, and her style and view a full tour of her lovely studio on Apartment Therapy. Below are some of my favorite photos from our shoot.
