The Terrell House

If you’re planning an event – whether corporate or private – and you’re scouting for a venue that hasn’t been used for a party a million times, look no further than The Terrell House. This Lower Garden District Mansion says New Orleans like you imagine New Orleans to be. The courtyard is spectacular for entertaining during the cooler months and the interior is perfectly curated by proprietor Linda O’Brien.


The Terrell House is also a great place to escape for a staycation or refer to friends visiting town and would like to stay some place different than the French Quarter or a downtown hotel. Their rooms have all of the southern charm you want, and the staff is graciously available to you at all times. I stopped by recently for a visit with Linda and poured through her guest book. It was so neat to read everyone’s stories of how far they traveled and how much they love New Orleans. I thought I would share just a few with you here…

Fall Trend Report from Mimi

To help us usher in a new season of fashion, we asked our local expert, Kathryn Bullock Joyner, buyer for Mimi and CeCe Shoe, to fill us in on which trends she’s excited about for fall. Read her style tips below and shop the latest looks at Mimi.

Subtle Sheerness: For Fall, designers deviated from predictable evening wear, in favor of intricate lace, tulle, netting, and silks all with unexpected sheer elements that feel so fresh and new.

Luxe Flats: The pointy flat is THE shoe for this season. Crafted in rich materials like velvet and hair calf or perfectly embellished, they transition from day to evening. Super chic and super comfy.

Magenta Madness: The unexpected, vibrant hue has popped up in the richest fabrication. From soft leather to jersey bonded satin, this intense color will turn up the heat as the weather begins to cool.

Essential Jewelry: New Orleans based jewelry line Crowe creates modern basics with a delicate and minimalistic esthetic. Our favorite is the 14 karat rose gold ear-jacket. It is truly one of those pieces which works so well with the rest of our daily jewelry.

Tonight at 8 PM CST, Tara Shaw on One Kings Lane

Our local design entrepreneur, Tara Shaw, has gone global! She is now working with RH and this week she is featured as the tastemaker on One Kings Lane. Set your clocks for 8 pm CST tonight when her sale goes live. It includes one-of-a-kind finds from Europe along with select pieces from her very own Maison line.


If you are one of those people who prefer to touch and see the beautiful pieces, she is having one last CLEAR THE DECKS EVENT beginning this Saturday, September 6th at 9 am at 1240 Camp Street in New Orleans. This is a limited time opportunity to save 50%-60% off on one-of-a-kind antiques and Maison floor samples. Once the goods are gone, Tara will be closing the doors to her warehouse to focus primarily on design projects.


She is currently working with TSG architect crush Ken Tate on some beautiful design projects — she calls them DREAM projects — and who wouldn’t? Outfitting any house that Ken Tate builds would be a dream. Here is a sneak peak of a few items she is placing in the homes.

Simple Statements by Marion Cage

Choosing gifts can be difficult if you aren’t familiar with someone’s taste. Sometimes, the simpler the gift, the better. I picked out a few of my favorite pieces by local jewelry designer, Marion Cage, that surely can translate to many different tastes and styles.

Swell Bangle - One of Marion’s best sellers, wear it alone or stacked with multiple metals or finishes.

Small Beak Pendant - Simple yet striking, this necklace adds just the right amount of edge to any look.

Wood Point Drop Earrings - Easy to wear… these hand-carved wood dangles with silver caps are the perfect day-to-day earring.

Arabesque Cigar Band - My personal fav because I own it in black rhodium. It’s bold, yet incredibly delicate in its detail, this ring captures the timeless beauty of Persian decorative motifs.

Explore Marion’s website for your favorite piece or stop by her store on Magazine Street.
