Getting the New Orleans Style

During a recent trip to New Orleans, I found myself feeling so inspired by the incredible architecture and design around the city. New Orleans has its own rich, unique history that is prevalent along the streets and inside the buildings. The French influence is part of what gives it so much character, along with the inspiring sense of self-expression and individualism. Eclectic is a great word to describe the general sense of style found throughout the city.

The New Orleans style offers so many great elements and ideas to work into your own home. Whether you want to dive fully into the style or just want to mix in some of the general flavor, these ten spaces will provide you with some excellent inspiration.

Deep, rich colors accented by traditional glamour like this lovely crystal chandelier are very popular in New Orleans-inspired decor.

It is common to see a lot of accessories in this style, so it takes great care to walk that fine line between character and clutter.

Antiques are a huge part of New Orleans design, as are bold but classic patterns.

Mixing the old with the new will give you that charming New Orleans appeal. An interesting finish on the walls can be a great place to start.

The antique furniture pairs nicely with the wall full of books and interesting pieces of art to bring tons of personality to this space.

There is always a sense of glamour in New Orleans design that feels a bit chaotic and lived in, but very inviting.

Here is that glamour again, indulging in the more romantic side of the French influence.

Exposed brick and rich wood tones definitely compliment this style and bring interesting texture to the space.

Stripes bring a classic elegance to this vignette, while a worn finish on the console table gives it a vintage vibe.

Glamorous details and an eclectic mix of accessories gives this vignette the style New Orleans is known for.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit New Orleans, you will not be disappointed by the art and design thriving in the city. Be ready to be inspired.

Warm regards,
Megan
