Although the house is new construction, built in 2018, it meshes prettily with New Orleans' historic style. Railings are wrought-iron, outdoor lighting mimics gas lanterns, wood shutters are painted palest gray.
The appealing front porch includes a custom-made swing for enjoying the fresh air and views of the neighborhood, a custom front door with planter pots on each side, and a copper gas lantern that provides pleasant illumination from above.
HGTV hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created this spacious and updated take on a cottage style home, with European influences, wood accents, a deep front porch, a large dormer and lots of room inside. The exterior mixes cream colored stucco with shutters painted in sage green. Other exterior highlights include gas-lantern sconces, a pergola-style trellis over the garage doors and landscaping that includes climbing jasmine.
A leather-textured and metal-studded ceiling, hand-carved ceiling medallion and sumptuous silk drapes with double-layered tassel and bullion fringe create a cozy corner for a hand-crafted game table and leather upholstered side chairs. Gas wall lanterns complement the soft glow of the three-tiered hand-painted silk Fortuny chandelier and help create an ambiance of luxury in this one-of-a-kind room.
