Bayou Contessa features George Dureau

George Dureau working in his studio

George Dureau is one of my favorite artists. He's based in New Orleans, one of my favorite cities. I've longed to see his art and will, one day (that'll be a Daily Success for sure).

I was introduced to his work in the design book,
New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence. I fell in love with his art, his sense of style, and the passion with which he lives his life. I'd love a home like his or at least get the chance to tour it.

Bayou Contessa is a wonderful blog by Julie Neill and she featured him and his latest abode last year (the book was pre-Katrina).

I had seen her post and ooh'd and ahh'd over the photographs she scanned from New Orleans Homes and Lifestyles. I'm going to share her feature of
George Dureau with you.

So jealous!

Invite Beauty,
