I recently moved from Atlanta to New Orleans and am balancing interior design projects in both places. In NOLA, I’ve been enjoying walks beneath the lazy Oak limbs in Audubon Park as well as shopping at the fabulous boutiques on Magazine Street. Here are the New Orleans shops I recommend, whether you’re a Big Easy native or just visiting:
This is a wonderful place offering original art, framing and accessories. The owner, Linda, has a flare for finding great artists!
Gerrie Bremermann has a shop filled with antiques and unique finds for the home. You’ve likely seen her published in shelter magazines; she’s a well-established designer in New Orleans, and an inspiration for all.
The White Camellia has lots of stylish accessories, and you have to check out the back patio for great outdoor décor!
This is one of my favorite shops that captures the true spirit of New Orleans. Don’t miss the great T-shirts and wearable décor.
Rye is another great shop for clothing, jewelry and accessories. My friend Giselle owns it, so tell her that I told you to stop by!
Clement Hardware & Variety
Located at the corner of Magazine and State Streets, Clement Hardware is a walk back in time. They’ll even help you repair a lamp or find the right hardware or tool for the job. Look for the old gas space heaters that many of us remember—I certainly have memories of standing in front of the heater early on a chilly morning in Mississippi getting warm.
