We’re a native New Orleans firm with extensive experience in commercial, residential, and historical projects, both small and large-scale.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

You can also see our “dragged” plaster finish on the walls, blending the plaster and gold pigment. Both the natural light in the room and the finish of the walls shimmer off the gold leaf ceiling. We did a complementary, lighter finish in the adjacent parlor (see our previous post) and also gold leafed the ceiling there. The end result is a dramatic and impressive space.

We’re delivering a terrific custom stencil pattern on the original wood floor in one of the bathrooms. We sanded and gave the floor some needed TLC. Then, we took a pattern created by our friend and the project’s interior designer, @sararuffincostello, and had a custom stencil made.

Here’s a shot from part of a residential project Here’s a shot from part of a residential project we did in an historic French Quarter home. In this small bathroom, the owner was looking for a lighter and softer look that would make the space feel more “open” and not something that would be overwhelming. We delivered a subtle faux finish glaze that not only compliments the vanity comprised of reclaimed wood, but also reflects the natural light beautifully! (Great shot by Paul Costello Photography!) Sylvia T Designs is New Orleans’ premier, native decorative arts firm. Let us know how we can help make your space a work of art!

Here’s a shot from part of a residential project we did in an historic French Quarter home.
