I’m hosting a guest blog from Luxe Decor featuring the amazing style of New Orleans!  I hope you’ll enjoy this post as much as I have!

Classic New Orleans style is romantic and elegant while being infused witha gothic sensibility. For those seeking a Southern style refresh with a Big Easy twist, there are many elements to consider. Classic and refined decorative elements will work for any home seeking to capture New Orleans spirit.

To amp up the Creole charm, here are a few design trends to explore.

Take a cue from the historic and gothic elements of New Orleans and design a living space dedicated to luxury. A plush velvet chaise takes center stage in a room with gray tile flooring as well as traditional parlor accents like chandeliers and a large fireplace.

Create a cozy family room while adding timeless New Orleans style by incorporating old-world décor. A large candelabrum takes center stage while bookcases with attached sconces provide unexpected regal flair.

For creating a real nod to bayou country, adding a large mural or intricate wallpaper will make a dining room feel like a mysterious museum. A classic dining table set makes for a trip back in time to the days when New Orleans was a cotton port and home to many French aristocrats.

For truly reinventing the style of NOLA, there’s no better decorating strategy than to forget less is more. Filling a space with eccentric art, colorful vases and funky furnishings will truly replicate the wild and wacky world of this eclectic and unforgettable city.
