Ahhhh, Magazine Street Shopping for antiques and Interior Design. The stores are located in beautiful old houses- built with the fabulous New Orleans proportions. The architecture is unique and the history is tangible. Here are a few shops that sum up the look nicely. They are actually located in a 2-3 block stretch of great Interior Design resources on Magazine Street. (see map below)
Shaun Smith Home 3947 Magazine Street New Orleans LA 70115 504-896-1020 A gorgeous store with a slightly contemporary twist on the New Orleans look. Shaun Smith has great taste.
Gerrie Bremermann Designs This is a gorgeous store that sums up the New Orleans look, executed with style. Gerrie is known as the “Grande Dame” of Interior Design in New Orleans. I love hearing the Dallas showroom reps get excited to go call on her with the latest fabrics, etc. She has been published extensively in the best magazines and has a very high-end clientele in New Orleans. 3943 Magazine Street, New Orleans 70115 504-891-7763
The great news is that these stores are actually next door to each other. When you make it to these 2 design jewels, be sure to enjoy the surrounding stores while you are there. You will be in a pocket of inspiration so plan to park and walk this area. I am attaching a map – a little bigger than necessary so you can see that this stretch is located on Magazine about half way between Napoleon Ave and Louisiana Ave.
Happy hunting! xxc
