There is nothing more appealing than a home that has a perfect combination of antiques incorporated with fresh design and a soothing palette. Flipping through the latest September-October issue of Veranda, I fell head over heels for the the New Orleans home of Tara Shaw. Her home is refined in the sense of a glamorous dinner party, yet at ease in the sense of all white lounge wear. While my comparisons may seem odd, I think the imagery speaks for my meaning. Sometimes words don’t cut it, but imagery does. Shaw so perfectly captures the importance of creating the ideal image.
Oh. My. Entry. The landscaping has the perfect curb appeal and refined hedges. Via Veranda
A serene palette of white and gray in the dining room. Notice the gray painted ceiling and tall doors. Always adds a nice touch.
A casual comfort of ambience in this living room full of texture and natural tones.
The fireplace is a lovely addition of warmth in this beautiful display of antiques mixed with more modern seating.
Wow. I would love to take a wood paneled room and use white curtains to soften the space. What a difference that makes!
Graphic painted wallpaper makes for a more contemporary injection into the house.
An ideal retreat. I love a good rug on top of a rug.
Such a sweet palette of every neutral under the sun.
Intricate woodwork details, modern tub appliances and a fabulous wash of white.
A fantastic backyard estate with elegance and symmetry. The pool shape works in sync with the home.
