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.

Apartment Therapy: Bradley's Post-Katrina Resurrected Shotgun

The Mid-City home of New Orleans artist Bradley Sabin is a feast for the eyes. Bradley, assistant director for Arthur Roger Gallery, has been bartering and buying art for over 20 years. Working in galleries for the past 15 years has given him access to art and objects most people don’t get to see. Although his half of the duplex is packed with a wealth of paintings, beloved objects, ceramics, and sculptures of various mediums, his home still manages to feel very tidy. Check out his amazing renovation and diverse art collection on Apartment Therapy. Below are some of my favorite images from our shoot.

Apartment Therapy: Breeze & Lauren's Adorable Double Shotgun

I can add Breeze and Lauren's adorable double shotgun to my list of all-time favorite house tours. The place is filled with so many pieces I wish I could call my own. The turquoise SMEG and antique church pew top the list! I'll be taking cues from their renovation when we're finally able to renovate a house of our own in this city full of buildings just waiting to be brought back to life.

Below are some of my favorites photos from the house tour. Visit Apartment Therapy to read about these lovely women and see the full tour.
