Home Grown | Asparagus

1 Grow The plant is a perennial, grown from rhizomes that form crowns.  In New Orleans, asparagus planted in spring probably won’t survive the hot summer.

Fortunately, there are measures homeowners can employ to make their houses safer.   Lead Amelia Yates, revival […]

Bright Ideas | Plant Power

Architect and designer Benjamin Massey believes in the power of the plant kingdom. While Massey’s talents are firmly rooted in residential architecture and interior design, this New Orleans native has a penchant for perennial plants and lush landscapes. “Greenery is beautiful and integral to our environment; however, in design, plants and flowers are sometimes overlooked,” […]

Last Indulgence | Light Bright

Locally, be sure to check out Wicks Nola — a Black and female-owned line of luxury candles and home fragrances (including wax melts and room […]

Bon Vivant | Accessory Access

Even with the vaccine being administered into arms across New Orleans and the nation, we are still being advised to wear masks for a while longer to protect ourselves and others.

Editor’s Note

THERESA CASSAGNE PHOTO We can now add transforming our homes, porches and yards into floats to our decorating skill sets. If you said to me during the 2020 Carnival season that’s how we’d spend the 2021 season, I’d have told you to stop pulling my leg. But, we’ve seen and done so much we never […]

Sunny + Bright

[gtx_gallery]   When husband and wife Ibert Schultz and Jessica Rambo chose Maureen Stevens of Maureen Stevens Design to decorate the interior of the Lower Garden District house they purchased in 2019, they quickly found that they shared a common vision — or as Rambo puts it, they “shared a brain.” “We both wanted to […]

Artist Profile

[gtx_gallery]   Carlton Scott Sturgill’s fabric floral installations are captivating paeans to blooms and vines, the perfect artistic genre for the season of rebirth. Yet, woven into each are layers of examination and commentary that become evident when one looks more closely. At the heart of Sturgill’s work (ranging from racy naturalistic paintings inspired by […]

Price Mix | Knives Out

As spring begins to bloom across the city, many gardeners may be looking to up their garden game and tool belt. The humble garden knife is the ultimate multi-purpose (and dare we say elegant) tool to add to any potting shed, flower bed or vegetable patch. It can be used to do everything from digging, […]

Ask the Experts | Home Economics

Lately, when I watch home design shows filmed pre-pandemic, I find myself talking to the TV, trying to warn the homeowners and renters about how their choices won’t make as much sense when spring of 2020 arrives. But there they are, removing walls for open floorplans or forgoing any outdoor space for that small, luxury […]
