Architect/Interior Designer, Chrestia Staub Pierce

Jeffery Johnston

How would you describe your design style? Our projects always focus on our client’s vision and reflect current trends, in a restrained and tailored manner.
Tell us about your unique approach? We approach every project – both large and small, residential and commercial – with a commitment to provide our clients with the most creative solutions for their design expectations, needs and budget.

What’s your take on design in New Orleans?  Being a New Orleans native, the city’s environmental, cultural, historic and architectural background is always an inspiration.
Do you have any golden rules of design? Rules of design are always changing; that’s the golden rule.

What is your own home like? I live in a classic New Orleans townhouse built around 1850. The beautifully designed interiors are a product of two renovations in the 19th century. The interiors combine contemporary furnishings and mid 20th century French antiques with local contemporary art.

What is next piece about which you’re excited? We are working on the conversion of a historical church and grounds into a residential urban compound; and the conversion of a ground floor commercial space in a high-rise building into a working law office/art gallery. We are also currently co-architects and interior designers for one of the largest new homes in the Garden District.
