We’re a New Orleans-based firm with extensive experience in commercial, residential, and historical projects, both small and large-scale around the Gulf Coast region.

Kitchen Renovation

We engaged Sylvia during the renovation of our kitchen. The work entailed changes to the wall colors, floor finish, counter tops, and repainting of the cabinets and island. Sylvia was instrumental in identifying the mix of colors and paint style that would complement the other aspects of our home. The overall creativity and knowledge of color matching and paint finishing were key factors in the overall success of the project. She always conducted herself very professionally and completed all work in a timely manner. Sylvia was very easy to work with both in the design and the implementation of the work. In addition, Sylvia developed a plan for repainting the wrought iron stair rail in our house. She worked to provide a truly unique product which aligns with and highlights the lighting and furniture in the foyer. Everyone who comes into our home is impressed with Sylvia’s work. We will use Sylvia again for future projects.

Kitchen Cabinet and Bar Refinishing

We recently did a small renovation which included our 22-year old kitchen cabinets and bar being refinished by Sylvia. They are our favorite part of the project. The finish is much prettier than I have seen on new factory cabinets coupled with a significant cost savings. Her work is really amazing.

Historic Restaurant Renovation in the French Quarter

All of our projects start with the building. We find old buildings with great bones that deserve to be preserved and reintroduced to everyone so that they may experience the history and sense of place in New Orleans. Sylvia is literally the person single most responsible for bringing them back to life with her restoration and decorative arts work. Once we have an amazing old building that we think people should experience, we create an idea for what type of restaurant would be authentic to the space. We then work with Sylvia to bring those ideas and the place to life.

Fireplace Refinish

Sylvia was very attentive to my style and wishes. She made a sample piece so I could see how it would look before she started. She was prompt and professional. Her price was reasonable.

Historic French Quarter Creole Cottage

The results that Sylvia and her crew created for my cottage in the French Quarter exceeded my expectations. From the consult, to the color selection and previews of samples she created, to the professional way the work itself was conducted, but mostly to the final outcome. Not only do I admire the walls every day, but the number of compliments I hear also proves that the job is fantastic. The cost was more than for some other finishes, but it seemed very reasonable for the work involved and certainly for the result, which is so beautiful!

Cabinet Refinishing

Sylvia was great to work with. She provided me with several samples of stains for my cabinets and beams. She was flexible in her schedule and met all deadlines. Her work is very beautiful and I love all she did. I will hire her again for additional work I am considering.

Longway Tavern – Historic French Quarter Restaurant

Each of our projects consist of two components. The first is the preservation of the history, culture and tradition of New Orleans and the sense of place implied by these old buildings. The second is populating these buildings with a team that embodies exactly what we think the 21st century New Orleans experience should be. Sylvia allows us to do both at the same time.

Here's the last element we want to share from this residential project in New Orleans we did a while back (please see our previous few posts for more)! We created a mural by interpreting an image from a publication that inspired the homeowner. It’s classic imagery of an English Garden Square is a bit wistful along with the individuals bringing a slightly “ghostly” feel. The finishing touch is the frame, which we goldleafed, giving the mural a gallery painting look. Overall, it’s a beautiful and tranquil addition to the home’s guestroom.

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier decorative arts firm that, along with many other services, can deliver expert custom mural work. If you can dream it up, we can make it happen, making your space a work of art!

Hey All! Two more areas (last one coming soon) we want to share from the residential project in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans we’ve been posting lately. Here, in the hall that leads to several bedrooms, we turned a pretty bland space into something special. We delivered an all-over classic Damask stencil on the walls. We also brought in a beautiful metallic paint finish to the ceiling. Lastly, we gold leafed the master bedroom doors’ rosettes. Everything ties together with the gold tones used in the stencil in this long hallway!

Hey All! Here’s a little more from the mural we delivered in the powder room of a New Orleans residence (see our previous post.) The mural wraps around three walls of the space and boasts a lush, dreamy New Orleans theme. We’ll be sharing a couple more elements we delivered elsewhere in the home soon!

Here’s another spot in the Lakeview, New Orleans residence where we delivered a couple terrific elements. (Please see the striking archway in our previous two posts.) This is from the front powder room. We applied gold leaf to the crown molding. The main feature in the room is the New Orleans-themed mural we painted around three of the walls. You can only see a portion here, but it adds a dream-like quality to the space!

Hey All! Here’s a #TBT shot from a residential project we completed a while back in New Orleans. We delivered a few elements in the home. Here, we finished this stunning archway as well as gold leafed the crown molding and chandelier. This is the entryway from the front door into the great room. The archway boasts a custom finish we created, as the homeowner wanted a look that was striking yet appears as if it had been there “for a long time.” The glazing (a stunning, multilayered blue tone) and the goldleaf were crackled resulting in the desired distressed appearance.

A big congratulations to our super team/family member, Jess! This terrifically talented, dedicated, and badass individual joined us a little over two years ago. Starting as an “Artisan Assistant,” she quickly became an “Artisan Apprentice.” After demonstrating great skill, leadership, product knowledge, and artistic insight, we’re delighted to announce that she has been promoted to full “Artisan.” This is something that is well-deserved and easy for us to acknowledge. We’re proud, honored, and thankful to have Jess with us!

We’re proud, honored, and thankful to have Jess with us!

Hey All! The feature wall is completed and we’re ready to move on with other elements for this special residential new construction project! This stunning centerpiece to the home’s great room is two-stories high and shows the deeply marbled look the owner was seeking. We used a special Grassello lime plaster to achieve the result. You can also see the final, handpainted Arabic script lettering using a custom mixed metallic gold. We’ll be sure to share more pics when the entire space is completed!

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier decorative arts firm trusted to bring our clients’ vision to life! Native to New Orleans but bringing a worldview that ranges from the traditional to the modern, we have been the area’s go-to decorative arts firm for over 25 years. Whether your project is large or small, commercial or residential, historic or new, let us know how we can make your space a work of art!

Hey All! Sure, we’re known for our top-flight decorative plaster finishes, our skilled plaster repair, classic and custom stencils, beautiful murals, and much more. But, we’re also experts in handpainted signage and lettering. Here, we’re painting two important Arabic expressions, including the Basmala, on our residential feature wall project. The image shows the script’s base coat using yellow paint. It was completed using a custom mixed metallic gold. You can see the final result very soon when we post the finished pics of this fabulous feature wall! Stay tuned!

Sylvia T Designs is the region’s premier decorative arts firm. Though rooted in and native to New Orleans, we bring a worldview to our work that runs the gamut from the traditional to the modern. Our artistry, product knowledge, and customer service are unmatched. If you want the best, reach out and let us know how we can make your space a work of art!
