Dream Homes of the South #3

Thursday, January 2, 2014

1912 St. Charles Avenue is home to Jon Vaccari and his showroom for Jon Vaccari Design.  This circa 1853 residence, known as the Walker-Wynn house underwent an eighteen month renovation to bring this New Orleans gem back to its former glory.  

The first floor has been designated as the showroom for Vaccari's antiques store.  His insanely beautiful inventory has been styled to perfection impressing even the most finicky client.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

On the second and third floors are the family living space.  Vaccari has packed every square inch with simple style and collected elegance.

Floor to ceiling windows are the signature of a low country mansion.  For this room Vaccari marries the past with the present by incorporating an antique French mirror, a modern painting on steel by Margaret Evangeline, and a Maison Jansen coffee table.  The sofa and chairs are Vaccari's own design.

Two leather sofas made by the famed Swiss de Sede company create a more relaxed feel for the family den.  A Polindori painting of Napoleon at Versailles adds vibrant color and contrast.

An Ibex coffee table is on my Must Have list, but this dining table is stunning.  Vaccari combined the 20th century table with Parisian chairs and Italian sconces.  

Marble, Marble, Marble!  This bathroom sings to me!


These are a few of my most loved pieces from Vaccari's inventory.  You can see more here.
