New Orleans knows how to preserve and celebrate its rich history in all aspects. Especially, its European inspired architecture. The Parisian style exterior and interior space has never blended so beautifully with a Southern influence. The unique housing for a unique city like the creole cottages and shotgun houses dominate most of the neighborhoods in New Orleans. This gem of a place will always be a delight to both natives and visitors with all the variety it has.

The influence of the American, European, Spanish, Haitian, and Africans has made The Big Easy truly a melting pot. One would assume with the diversity in culture, music, food, and architecture, that there would be mass confliction but not even close. Whether it’s a time of celebration or mourning, New Orleans brings the community together. The Big Easy truly knows the meaning of love and community.

"Everything in New Orleans is a good idea. Bijou temple-type cottages and lyric cathedrals side by side. Houses and mansions, structures of wild grace. Italianate, Gothic, Romanesque, Greek Revival standing in a long line in the rain. Roman Catholic art. Sweeping front porches, turrets, cast-iron balconies, colonnades- 30-foot columns, gloriously beautiful- double pitched roofs, all the architecture of the whole wide world and it doesn’t move." – Bob Dylan, Chronicles, Vol. 1, 2004

For a place that is nothing but humble, they know how to give it a touch of luxury and sophistication in such a way that is welcoming and home-y. Never shy on giving an interior space a big personality and character with its decor and shiny, traditional pieces along with tufted furniture and of course, a lavish chandelier. It seems that they don’t believe in the philosophy ‘less is more’ when it comes to decorating their home. New Orleans likes to keep the rich history within reach/view, if you know what I mean.

The Big Easy definitely has a charm to the place, whether it’s a luxurious place or a rustic, run-down joint like this. No matter how the interior space has been decorated, you can’t deny the fact the there is an abundance of history in it. It makes you imagine what it was like being in a bar in New Orleans way back when it wasn’t known to be such a tourist attraction, just seeing history write would probably do it.

The historic Garden District is one of the most popular neighborhoods in New Orleans due to its tradition, opulence, and beauty in the well-preserved collection of antebellum mansions, pristine gardens and southern charm. The Garden District is considered to be one of the most loveliest neighborhoods across the country, attracting celebrities like Sandra Bullock, Anne Rice, Nicholas Cage, and more. And it's no wonder why, for the elegance of the neighborhood is truly second to none.
