“New Orleans style is different from anywhere else on earth because it springs from its genius loci, the mud of this place. At its best, New Orleans style means old Southern architecture with high ceilings and gorgeous plasterwork, a client who favors French antiques, and an irreverent designer to inject some modern dash.” —Mimi Read

“New Orleans’ post-Katrina renaissance has been accompanied by thrilling developments in interior design. Award-winning photographer Kerri McCaffety explores 40 of the Crescent City’s most compelling residences, from a Garden District carriage house filled with 18th-century antiques to a Coliseum Square mansion accentuated with massive modern canvases. With more than 200 pages of stunning, full-color photographs and an introduction by the celebrated writer (and New Orleans resident) Julia Reed, McCaffety’s book offers a portrait of a city with a rich cultural legacy and a penchant for avant-garde design.” —Lonny magazine

“In the post-Katrina design world, local homeowners maintain a healthy respect for the past (this is New Orleans, after all), but they are no longer confined by it. Lucite tables, bold colors, abstract art, and graphic fabrics mix with old-world antiques and architecture. Thumb through the pages of New Orleans, New Elegance for a peek inside more than forty eclectically appointed homes and apartments from the French Quarter and the Garden District to the Warehouse District and Uptown.” —Garden & Gun magazine
