Summertime Hospitality

Whether you’re entertaining guests this summer, revamping your outdoor space or looking for inspiration for your next home project, we have many ideas for you!
In this issue, we showcase four guesthouses, discovered by writer Lee Cutrone. They aren’t available to rent, but they might motivate you to revamp your own spare space and invite friends and family to stay. Each one fits the owner’s personal taste, and while they may be smaller than a traditional home, they are oozing with style. Along the lines of Southern hospitality this summer, Valorie Hart met with Melissa Martin of the Mosquito Supper Club and obtained six delightful recipes and tips on how to throw a casual but festive brunch. You will certainly find it useful the next time you are hosting.

We also showcase the light-filled home of Darryl Willis and his wife, Dawnia. The Gentilly native Darryl’s career has brought him all over the world, but when he was finally able to return to New Orleans, he bought and renovated an Uptown cottage by the park, where the couple now lives in bliss after working with designer Donna Maselli to create their ideal sanctuary.

Another couple, Liz and Austin Kent, wanted their new home to reflect their personal eclectic style. They teamed up with Penny Francis to renovate a Craftsman-era cottage, which combines quirky, playful elements with the utmost elegance.

As is our summer tradition, we’ve expanded our outdoor coverage. Lisa Tudor provides you with inspiration for outdoor accessorizing in Trendwatch, pg. 33; Pamela Marquis gives you tips on wildflowers in For the Garden, pg. 26 – where to find them and where to grow them yourself – and we also obtained some advice from area experts on how to jazz up your backyard or patio in Ask the Experts, pg. 100.

We hope you find this issue as relaxing and enjoyable as you delve into summertime.
