The Best Of The Best - Ann Holden

It's always a thrill when a New Orleans designer and architect get national recognition. I think New Orleans has an amazing talent pool, and some of the best design work is done here. So it is with great pride that I share the work of Ann Holden (and architect William Sonner) featured in the January/February issue of Veranda. In fact Ann got the cover.

You can read an in depth article about Ann Holden at Cote de Texas. Joni Web does her usual thorough well researched round-up and history of Ann's career, with lots of big gorgeous pictures.

For my part I share the visual...

The Italianate house on St. Charles venue was taken down to the studs and the original 1884 footprint, and then rebuilt and replicated, with a huge addition added at the back, b architect William Sonner

The front hall - You can see the new addition at the back of the house - Love the lantern

The modern addition features metal cased windows (LOVE them)

A stone fireplace in the addition mixes trad with mod

A breakfast area

The dining room

The new sleek kitchen

A snug library/den

One of the bedrooms
