Imagine fulfilling your dream of renovating a captivating Victorian Home in New Orleans. It’s a city renowned for its distinctive character. The style doesn’t have to be limited to Victorian. Any residence that exudes that unique NOLA charm is a canvas for transformation. The thrill of infusing modern elements while preserving historical allure was an irresistible challenge. I experienced this firsthand when reviving a 1930s Spanish Colonial home in Los Angeles.
Recently, my inspiration soared to new heights when I stumbled upon an Architectural Digest feature showcasing a remarkable Victorian home in New Orleans. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world. And it took me by surprise when I saw the exterior of the home was adorned in enchanting shades of pink and green. Samantha Wetton and Alexandra Neu of Lafayette Studio decided to lean into a vibrant color palette for the exterior. It’s not every day that we see a pink and green home! Join me as we embark on a virtual tour of this mesmerizing residence. The home has its own delightful carriage house—a true testament to the perfect blend of past and present.
Who doesn’t love a tour of a holiday home in Italy? London-based designer and gallerist, Shiro Muchiri, made the decision to take the risk and transform two buildings on a vast Tuscan farmhouse into a summer oasis for her family. She spent years renting different homes for family vacations. In 2014, she made the decision to buy a place for her family to enjoy every summer. The farmhouse, one of many on the vast estate of Villa di Torre a Cona, was constructed in the 19th century. Actually, there were two farming families living there; they both sold produce, which included olives, to affluent Florentine families. It had been abandoned since the 1940s. Shiro took on the challenge and beautifully renovated the space.
You may have heard of “quiet luxury” by now – a muted and minimalist style movement that’s gaining a lot of attention lately. It’s been spotted on runways and celebrity street style.

Less is more when it comes to interior design for 2023.

Quiet luxury is about high-quality, logo-free style that’s minimalist yet not too edgy. It’s all about being the most polished and restrained self. Focus on muted tones and cozy soft fabrics to achieve the look.
