180-Year-Old Marigny Creole Cottage With Artful Decor Asks $1.65M

27 artists were hired to paint throughout the house

This home right on the French Quarter/Marigny border is a funky palace filled with interesting artistic touches. The fairly normal exterior belies what's happening on the inside.

Walk in and a foyer with checkered marble floors and decorated moulding greets you. Through the rest of the home you'll find bold paint colors and textured finishes, more checkered floors, murals, and a kitchen where every inch is painted. In total, 27 artists were hired to paint throughout the house.

In the master bathroom, there's indigo pebble tile, a modernist soaking tub, and graphic wall paper.

A sunroom looks out onto the lush courtyard out back, which has a heated pool.

The asking price is $1,650,000.
