NOLA Style....

I love the mixings of architecture that are scattered throughout the south and Louisiana in particular has a vast array of styles that include French, Spanish, West Indies and Antebellum to name just a few. These influences come together and is reflected in the food, architecture, music and history that is uniquely New Orleans. It's Mardi Gras now and in honour of things french, southern and creole I thought I would share some new and vintage items that are sure to add some NOLA style to your space.

Old Mardis Gras Ticket.  It is for sale for $50 here. 

Reproduction French style wood turned chandelier. $450 at perch. 


Loving these silk satin cut velvet drapes.  These can be found at Perch in New Orleans.

Map of New Orleans Tray by Laurel Wilder.  Available exclusively from Hazelnut New Orleans.

100 year old roofing tiles stamped with a fleur de lis.  $3 a piece from Craigslist.

Interesting look at this blend of French, Spanish and West Indies Architecture.  Through Amazon.
