I just returned from another great visit to one of my favorite cities - New Orleans! As a designer I gain so much inspiration for my 'vault' to use in current & future design projects.
I love the great architecture, the live music everywhere, the garden courtyards, the mighty Mississippi, the free spirits of today (and the spirits of the past), the Cajun cooking, Michalopoulos, that distinct New Orleans accent and much more.
Here are some of my inspirations:
Brass trumpet light fixture for a Musician Client & blue globe pendant installation for a Client's Dining Room
Bottle ceiling installation for a Client's Bar - residential or commercial
Medallions for adorning a wood fireplace surround, a wood framed mirror, or a bookcase
I'd hire my talented artist cousin from Salem, MA Jill Pabich to paint this in a children's library or playroom
This is Soul Project. Go hear them live if you're in NOLA!
I loved meeting this artist Steve Martin! He has great energy & enthusiasm...and art. These frames are salvaged after Katrina and he has a great story behind his works.
Visit his gallery if you're in New Orleans.
