Thank you for stopping by New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles’ “Bon Vivant” blog. Writer Melanie Warner Spencer is out on vacation this week and will return on June 22 with piping hot posts three times a week, as usual. Meanwhile, if you are jonseing for something to read, catch up on posts you may have missed by checking out the “Bon Vivant” archives or, spend some time with the current issue of New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles magazine or its archives.

You can also follow Spencer on Instagram and Facebook for posts (mostly) centering on design and lifestyle and occasional fodder about her adorable, but very bad furball, Mr. Percy the Diabetic Cat, who is joining the family for socially distant vacation in the woods this week, which is sure to be eventful.
