Second Times a Charm

We were so delighted when Barbara asked us to do a guest post while she is out for a few days. What an honor and privilege to be able to share our passion with the readers at Haus Design. We are a blogging duo, Renee and Angela, from Under Spanish Moss. This a our debut guest post; so the pressure is on. We hope you enjoy!

We have been enamoured with the work of Louisiana based architect, Ken Tate, for some time now and wanted to share one of his beautifully designed homes with you. Mr. Tate was asked to do a major revision on a home he originally designed. The home owners acquired the home next door to theirs and commissioned Mr. Tate to reconstruct and combine the two homes into a grand French inspired home. Ken combined the two homes with a gallery, moved the guest rooms to the newly acquired home and reconstructed the entire second floor of the original home into a massive master suite. Ann Holden, a New Orleans interior designer was brought on board to work on the project. The classical elements and architectural details of the home are simple wonderful.

What is your favorite room or favorite elements in the home?

Making today great!

Angela and Renee
