Book Description
New Orleans Style: Past and Present reveals the complex character and varied architectural traditions of the South's greatest city. Thanks to its history as a colony of both France and Spain, New Orleans is America's most European city, particularly in the Vieux Carré, or French Quarter. Add to this the city's well-known reputation for fantasy and decadence, as displayed in its annual Carnival and Mardi Gras celebrations, and you have a recipe for irresistibly fascinating architecture and décor.
New Orleans Style explores the city's full architectural range and the incredible variety of its decoration, providing an overview of the city's preservation movement while exploring the distinct neighborhoods and architectural styles, as well as the mingling of influences and impulses, that make New Orleans so uniquely cosmopolitan, sensual, and mysterious.
