Lee Cutrone

Lee Cutrone is a freelance writer and native New Orleanian who lives and works in the Crescent City. Fascinated by the decorative arts since childhood, she has circled the block on numerous occasions to get a second glimpse of a well-done house and writes about them for our pages. She appreciates a diversity of styles but says there are three things she especially likes included with a home of her own: A loving pet (or two), an aromatic sweet olive, and the nearby sounds of the Mississippi River.
