This Louisiana house is an eclectic mix of Cajun, Creole, Spanish and French Colonial design. With its raised front porch steps and French doors with full-length shutters, the home fuses Cajun cottage elements with Creole architecture. The facade's wide porches and simple columns are a nod to the Greek revival mansions of the 19th century that were favored by wealthy southerners.
Inside, Town designed a home of grand scale overflowing with southern charm. The rich, warm patina on the furnishings and accessories in the living room keeps the formality in check.
The master suite is the utmost in elegance with sparkling accessories amid a sea of shimmery blue-gray fabrics. The bed commands full attention upon entering the room.
