House Tour: In New Orleans with Colleen Waguespack

Colleen Waguespack Interiors


Leave it to a true New Orleans native to create magic in a historic New Orleans home. 



Colleen Waguespack of Colleen Waguespack Interiors reimagined this gem, built in 1868, filled with historic charm, for a modern family’s needs. 



One of the “Seven Sisters” designed by architect Henry Howard, Waguespack used the shotgun-style design to her advantage creating a true showplace. 



Bold, modern art, comfy seating,



And cozy nooks for reading and resting,



Define this light, bright home that is filled with beautiful, unique spaces. 



A cozy and charming kitchen comes to life with form and function, 



A mix of old and new creates a dining room perfect for guests–



With a touch of whimsy. 



One of our favorite things about Waguespack’s designs is that she isn’t afraid of color



Bold hues,



And fun patterns mix to breathe new life into a an old home, making it fit for several centuries to come.
