What's Hot: Home Décor

In New Orleans we approach our home decor just as we approach dressing, celebrating and festing– more is more. If you plan to give your home a refresh for spring, consider incorporating pieces that have dynamic details in texture, print and quirkiness.

1. The five-tiered Aloha fringe chandelier with brushed brass detail is a fanciful conversation piece for any room.  Anthropologie, Canal Place, 333 Canal St., 592-9972, Anthropologie.com.

2. A side table is turned into a showpiece to flock to thanks to a team of golden flamingos proudly propping up the glass top. Z Gallerie, Lakeside Shopping Center, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., 249-7938, ZGallerie.com.

3. The sheerness, scalloped sides and blossom embroidery on the Olivia curtain panels from Bella Notte is a lovely way to let the light in. Sold individually. Relish, 600 Metairie Road, 309-3336, RelishNewOrleans.com.
