Going to New Orleans

Tomorrow my husband and I are off to New Orleans for the next four days. Thanks to the wonderful worldwide web, we have become 'online friends' with Michael Harold and Quinn Pepper, our hosts for the weekend. Michael and Quinn's fabulous home was featured in Susan Sully's book The Southern Cosmopolitan (Rizzoli). Enjoy the photos of their home and I will feature more photos from our weekend next week.

A screen of gold-on-cerulean silk designed by Rosemary James. On the table a costume hat from the Ballets Russe and turquoise worry beads from Greece.

In the dining room a Swedish chandelier and Louis XVI dinning room chairs take center stage.

A French chair and classical relief sculptures from John Roselli grace the master bedroom.

Pocket doors lead to the entrance hall that houses a piano. Both Michael and Quinn are both prize-winning pianists who have performed at Carnegie Hall.

Welcome to our wonderfully unique city of hidden treasure and delectable delight! I'm sure your friends will direct you but the New Orleanian in me can't help but be hostess...if you have time visit Perch (contemporary interiors) and Peid Nu (cottage contemporary interiors and easy to wear high fashion) and Belladonna (the best spa shopping we have to offer)...all of these are on Magazine. For some good eating...try Patois (featured on my blog Loverly Notions) and Dante's for some gourmet southern cuisine fresh from our local growers.

Bon Appetite and Laissez Les Bon Temps Roule!
