Sofa / Rug / Floor Lamp / Mirror / Ottoman (similar)

Hello and welcome to this comfy little slice of New Orleans heaven! This recently renovated classic Creole cottage is the little sister to the Nola Happy project I shared on the blog last year. This one bedroom and 1 bath suite is wonderfully comfortable and cozy and makes use of all it’s 400 sq ft with a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom. The owners wanted to create a stylish, private and comfortable place for family and friends to stay when they are in town visiting, and they also rent it when available.


In honor of Mardi Gras, I’m teaming up with the folks at Nola Happy Home to give away a 2 night stay in this amazing space! You can find more details and how to enter here.

Now, let’s take a little tour:


The space is small but has an amazing flow that makes it seem spacious (I should know as I stayed there for almost a week!). It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway to explore New Orleans. The home was thoughtfully styled by Matthew Birmingham with a little help from yours truly in a few areas (I will always love a good throw blanket across a sofa).


Isn’t that bathroom so fun?! I worked with the owners to select the tile, finishes and accessories. We chose classic subway and hex tiles and added a playful edge with the floor design. Its such a bright and happy spot to get ready in the morning!

The kitchen is the brainchild of local designer Angela Murtagh. She worked with the owners to design the layout and utilize the tiny space in the most clever ways!
