This home is one of my all time favorites, so I’m sharing it again.
It’s the New Orleans home designer Tara Shaw.
Inside the house, Tara has set a tone that’s equal parts grand and easy.
By using a palette that’s become the byword of modern chic—a well-layered assortment of neutral tones—she’s made her collection of sumptuous, classical furnishings feel as unintimidating and current as can be.
Tara wanted to balance the house’s austere facade with a comfortable, light feeling inside.
For the foyer, she chose Venetian plaster for the walls.
It’s glossy, textured, and easily repairable—important for such a high-traffic space.
This palette has another purpose besides modernizing historic pieces: relaxation. “I wanted serene colors,” she explains.
“After juggling so many balls all day, I don’t want to be stimulated when I walk in the door.”
“I’m always looking for the extremely unusual piece that can stand on its own and captivate a room.”
I simply love it!
