The Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans is celebrating its 41st annual Holiday Home Tour. This year’s tour will feature eight Garden District homes dressed up for the holidays.
The home tour will take place between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on December 10 to 11. To purchase tickets for the tour, and to find out more information, visit the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans’ website.
The holiday tour of the Garden District tour is self-guided. The Trinity Episcopal Church, located at 1329 Jackson Avenue, will serve as headquarters during touring hours.
Here is a sneak peak of six of the snazzy homes on the tour
1424 Pleasant Street - Beatriz and Warren Ball, Homeowners
The first house on the tour has beautiful parlor. Check out the room’s tall ceilings, complimented by it classy chandelier. The creme color scheme works in its favor.
1312 First Street - Lynn and Scott Brown, Homeowners
Just in time for the cool weather is a elegant sunroom. The room has a beautiful view of the private garden, and is designed to maximize natural lighting.
2520 Prytania Street - Mary Lou Christovich, Homeowners
This house has a classy foyer, with a soaring ceiling and beautiful flooring. The red-and-white stairs add a pleasant holiday feel to the room’s atmosphere.
1236 First Street - Erin and Lawrence Hjersted, Homeowners
This house has a beautiful kitchen, with a simple but nicely-finished Island. The consistent white color throughout the kitchen, coupled with its dark wooden floors, creates an eye-pleasing contrast.
2912 Prytania Street - Michael W. Murphy II and Brent J. Becnel, Homeowners
This home has a beautiful sitting area, with amazing contrast between its blue walls and brown, high ceiling.
1435 Second Street - Catherine Burns Tremaine
Sometimes, the holidays can never be complete until everyone can gather for a meal. In this house, during meal time, presentation is everything. Check out the beautifully finished dining room table, which contrasts well with the yellow interior color.
