A New Orleans Shotgun Duplex with Vintage Charm
Most homeowners want their houses to be an embodiment of the own character. New architectural designs or remodeling projects as such, frequently borrow a lot from the traits which these homeowners believe innately authentic. This perhaps is why Breeze Braunschweig and Lauren Wells’ 1600 square foot abode in New Orleans cries of classic charm with a dash jazz, which is fittingly apt thinking about the rich musical heritage of Crescent City.
Originally featuring a double shotgun layout, the home now brags of bohemian warmth after a remodeling exercise that simply brought down constructed out closets, leaving in its wake, authentic and tiled brick walls, resurfaced ceilings and repointed chimneys. The outcome is almost mythical, like a scene from a film set from the eras long gone. Décor and supplying is a subtle mix of flea market gems, Craigslist listings and older age pieces of furniture which bring to life, a feeling of happiness, heat and even romanticism.
The shotgun duplex looks great on the outside, particularly the color drama that combines blue, yellow, some bit of pink and white hue. The furnishings on the living rooms are minimalist but very creative. Take the room-long church pew for example; it’s authentically south but quite inventive in its positioning. This along with the comfortable opposing sofa with its colorful serape cover and round coffee table finish the furniture collection in this living room. The handwoven rug along with the hanging art on the wall, make a classic charm that both of these homeowners sought to bring to life.
While the rest of the rooms still feature the bare brick walls, the living room has gleaming white walls which produce the most of the vibrant cloth draperies, providing s and art. This brightness enhances the shiny nature of the pieces of décor. The living room also includes a retro-style player whose colour blends so well with the general vintage look that characterizes the home.
Each side of this duplex shotgun houses two bedrooms, each with a classic metal bed with quite cozy bedding. The highlights of those bedrooms nevertheless are the blend of their previous age fireplaces and the reclaimed barn doors which add a sense of style while preserving the general vintage scheme. This is so especially since the old age bedding in the bedroom and the towel holds, paint a scene of centuries.
Fixtures from the kitchen are in keeping with the general scheme. The O’Keefe and Merritt gas stove in the 1950s dominates the cooking area while a SMEG refrigerator completes the opposite wall. These oldies do match the barn-style outdoor chairs which populate the eating place.
there’s a lot to appreciate about this duplex shotgun. Significantly though, is its simple layout, unique reclaimed fittings and brilliant use of features like sliding doors that actually save on space. This house is simply inspirational.
