House Proud by Valorie Hart: Unique Home Design in Louisiana


Introducing  House Proud a book that celebrates homes and life in New Orleans and the surrounding areas in Louisiana. When I think of a particular region in the United States or the world, for that matter. A certain style of architecture pops into my mind. 

Now we know that every city has a variety of architectural examples, from Colonial to Contemporary; however New Orleans architecture is infused with "that certain  brand of hospitality and history not to be seen in other cities.


Author and Designer Valorie Hart. She is known as The Visual Vamp, the title of her very popular blog. 


Valorie has an innate sense for bringing together High and Low; melding them seamlessly and adding in all of the most important layers of a clients cherished collections into what is a most unique and interesting home....a start to many conversations at any gathering.




These wonderful images will do the talking, as I want each and everyone of you to put this book on you Holiday Wish List! You will find some or many  things that mesmerize you in every room! 




Ghost Chairs virtually disappear and bring into focus the console, art and silk panels!

Ahh those floors and the luxe fabric on this antique chaise/ daybed!


Unique candleholders catch the eye and the chandelier, amazing!


The burst of fuchsia with this classic gold toned serving cart makes my heart sing!
