Corner Comeback 

French Accents -- In the dining room, the homeowner and interior designer used a 19th century French Louis XV painted table surrounded by eight French chairs. A French chandelier from Karla Katz Antiques hangs above the table. The colors of the abstracts by (left to right) Auguste Garufi and Jean Geraci relate to the bright yellow pattern of the antique Oushak rug.

  • <b>Easy Living --</b>The homeowner, a native New 
    Orleanian who'd been living in Florida for nearly two 
    decades, is fond of French antiques and likes to mix old 
    and new. Furnishings in the living room include a pair of 
    Marquise chairs, circa 1890, several 19th century 
    Aubusson pillows found in Atlanta, an 18th century 
    Italian chandelier from Shabby Slips in New Orleans, 
    custom-made hour-glass ottomans upholstered with 
    mohair and trimmed with coral fringe, and a Neirman 
    Weeks Venetian silver-leaf table with mirrored panels.

  • <b>Sweet Dreams --</b> Shades of pink and green 
    brighten the bedroom without interfering with its 
    serenity. The "Nancy Bed" was created by Benton Designs 
    in Florida and named after interior designer Nancy 
    Greenfield, who had it specially made for the room. The 
    reproduction demi-lune table to the right of the bed 
    originally was located in the owner's Florida house, as 
    was the settee purchased at Royal Antiques. After 
    surviving hurricane Ivan, both were brought to New 
    Orleans.

  • <b>Walk This Way --</b> To the right of the entrance 
    foyer is a Swedish grandfather clock from St. Gertrude on 
    Magazine Street. Sypesteyn found the trapezoidal gate 
    used as the entrance to a storage area under the stairs 
    through a local dealer. An antique column at the far end 
    of the foyer serves as a pedestal for a work by American 
    glass artist Dale Chihuly. The column's worn finish 
    echoes the peeling patina of the clock and the textural 
    tones of Adele Sypesteyn's large canvas over the 
    staircase, which has an iron-capped glass railing, 
    conceived and installed by Sypesteyn.

  • <b>Past Perfect --</b> An 18th century walnut-and-
    pewter lavabo, originally from France, works as an 
    elegant, space-saving lavatory in the tiny powder room. 
    Louisiana artist Randy Verdin applied the Venetian 
    plaster finish to the walls and the walls of the living 
    room, dining room and master bath.
