Design Masters

Photographed by Greg Miles

Each year, New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles’ Design Masters feature shines a light on the local designers, artists, artisans and business people who contribute so singularly to the way our city looks, feels and functions. This year, we honor 10 such individuals – Design Masters one and all. We celebrate their accomplishments, which include local landmarks, the rooms we use on a daily basis, the decorative details that enliven our spaces and the way we harness energy for a greener tomorrow. We look forward to their continued successes. Congratulations to our 2014 master class.
