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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great feature in the recent “Preservation in Print” magazine by the Preservation Resource Center here in New Orleans in their “Green Issue.” They highlight the Seignouret-Brulatour House, the Historic New Orleans Collection’s expansion on Royal St. in the French Quarter. This part of their complex is a “highly energy-efficient campus that elegantly blends historic preservation with green building practices.” We had the honor of redoing the famed “Organ Room,” the only space to see the original late-nineteenth/early twentieth century finishes recreated and restored. It is a centerpiece of the museum.
 
The work combined our experience and care in working in historic spaces along with our contemporary product knowledge. Though true to the original look and feel, all the materials we used were LEED certified, green, and durable. Here, you can see a shot of part of the room looking in from one of the doorways. Also, among several other elements we delivered (check out the post on our website), you can see a close-up of the mantle ornamentation. We cleaned, restored, and painted the entire mantle bringing it back to its original glory! Whether a resident or visitor, be sure to visit The Historic New Orleans Collection. It is an amazing and quintessential gateway to our city and region!

Here is Day 3 of 3 (please see our previous two posts for more!) of our recent Roman Clay plaster project in this Uptown, New Orleans historic residence. You can see how the earthy, yet warm color of the plaster terrifically compliments the stained wood crown molding and wood paneled door. Here, we are wrapping things up by painting the trim. The result was a beautiful look in the dining room with all the elements of the space coming together with the plaster on the walls and ceiling!

Hey All – Here is Day 2 of 3 (please see our previous post) from our recent plaster project in Uptown, New Orleans. We’ve delivered a beautiful plaster finish in this historic residence’s dining room on the walls and ceiling. In this shot, we’re applying the second coat of the Roman clay plaster. So much of the result stems from both the timing of the coats as well as understanding the color process when tinting the plaster and utilizing multiple applications. It takes skill and experience to create the desired texture, look, and finished color when everything is said and done! More tomorrow…

Here at Sylvia T Designs, we have been “honoring tradition and progress” for 25 years. The work we do is an honor and privilege. It’s also an honor and privilege to have a team/family member like Jess! She joined us in October 2019 and hasn’t looked back since! She brought talent, determination, and a special attitude to the table. Starting at the beginning, she became an Artisan Apprentice with much more to come.

Here’s a shot of a great current residential project in an Uptown, New Orleans historic home. We’re delivering a beautiful plaster finish on the fireplace wall in the master bedroom that is meant to be the centerpiece of the room. It’s a lime plaster application where we are giving it a distressed look by applying layers of lime wash (seen in the pic) to achieve the desired effect. In the end, the color will be lighter in appearance and the wall will have a stunning, flowing feel. It takes expert hands to get the timing and treatment just right to achieve the desired result!

It’s a lime plaster application where we are giving it a distressed look by applying layers of lime wash (seen in the pic) to achieve the desired effect. In the end, the color will be lighter in appearance and the wall will have a stunning, flowing feel. It takes expert hands to get the timing and treatment just right to achieve the desired result!

We hope everyone had a very joyous and safe New Year’s! We’re excited for 2021 (aren’t we all?!?) and ready to make your space a work of art!
 
A feature wall or area can transform your residence or business. Grab visitors with your vision, your inspiration, or your brand! Here, we delivered an elegant reception area for a local dentist’s office. We expertly combined paint and plaster to create this flowing and striking reception desk and wall presentation. Thanks to our friend and interior designer. @clairelewisdesigns, for bringing us in on this great project! Click the link in our bio to learn more!
