NOLA Fabulousness: A Walk through the Garden District

The only downside to living in a neighborhood as beautiful as this one would be to see a wacko like me zooming my camera in on your house…but creepiness aside, it’s flattering, no?

Give me a house with full length shutters and I’m a happy girl!

Can’t see the actual house but the lush greenery and pretty lantern sure are pretty!

Now that’ s Front Porch.

A romantic sidewalk that gives you just a peak of an iconic and somewhat mysterious New Orleans cemetery.

Love the mossy brick steps…

Pretty in pink

In a class of it’s own… I picture whoever lives here always to wear perfectly pressed linen clothing and drink mint juleps out of monogrammed sterling mint julep cups!

Gorgeous hanging baskets.  The house isn’t too bad either!

Shotgun love.  As in the house.

Old trees and a classic beauty….

Charming white on white…

One of my favorite color schemes of a NOLA house: off white with taupe shutters.

Fabulous striped shades and a petite but perfectly landscaped courtyard.

White on white with some color pops seen through the windows.

Lanterns are everywhere.

Another house where small doesn’t restrict elegance!

Another row of shotgun cuties

The array of architecture is truly amazing…

Just the array of shutter styles and colors is amazing too!

Normally it’s frustrating to not see past the front gates when trying to house stalk, but these walls are pretty enough to satisfy my prying eyes!

See, show us a pretty gate and we don’t need to see your pretty house (though I still want to see it)!

Hope you enjoyed the walking tour! 

For next time I must allow more time, and perhaps a better zoom!!!

What a beautiful place!! All of those homes have so much charm and character, I am dying to see what all the insides look like too :)

That was fun, they're all so pretty. I hope that my house has that much character one day.
