While we’re busy working on our home I thought it would be fun to share the house of fellow New Orleans residents and friends Rachel and John. It’s a comfortable, beautifully curated space of collected treasures found over time.
Rachel is originally from NYC and moved to NOLA in 1998 to go to college. She moved back to NYC right before Katrina to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology for accessory design but returned shortly after because she couldn’t stand being away from New Orleans. She is now a psychotherapist. John is from Buras LA but has lived in NOLA since he was 18. He is a para legal/court runner.
Aside from their jobs, spending time with John’s daughter and working on the home they love music and are in a synth pop band called Baby Bats!
They spent 7 months renovating their home built in 1899! It reminds me so much of Portland Oregon for some reason which may be why I feel such a connection to it (before New Orleans we lived in Portland) When I was feeling at a loss and like I was hitting a wall in our house all it took was a tour through their space to feel invigorated and inspired again. I hope you feel the same way.
Now go create some magic in your home.
