The delightfully unexpected shade of lavender paint he chose for the dining room area was the perfect quiet backdrop for the various furniture and accessories he borrowed from shops around New Orleans.
The zinc wrapped dining table and Swedish secretary he borrowed from us at perch. The metal mirror was an inexpensive Target find and the shades on the lamps he found and spray-painted silver. He handpicked the assortment of silver candlesticks, flatware and gorgeous tureen from Top Drawer Antiques, as well as the antique Bavarian China.
He said he found the china piled up and covered with a fine layer of ancient dust and grime - only found on the best undiscovered objects unearthed in authentic antique stores and markets where he loves to shop.
He also borrowed another one of my favorite pieces from perch. - this English secretary and campaign chest.
It worked so perfectly with the Audubon inspired print above flanked by the two French windowed sconces also from our shop.
The porcelain bowl filled with roses and the blanc de chine ladies opposite were the perfect touch.
It was truly an inspired design. Thank you Eddie for shedding light on New Orleans and for honoring us with your hard work and time here. It is appreciated more than you know.
