Sylvia T. Designs is a full-service decorative arts firm experienced in delivering artistry, craftsmanship, and our clients’ vision for nearly 25 years in the New Orleans Metro Area.

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

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

Instagram post 17843875153775224 It’s an honor to be entrusted with doing work in historic spaces. We take this very seriously. As a native New Orleans decorative arts firm, this is rooted in our DNA – our sense of place and the responsibility placed in our hands by our clients is sacred to us. It informs what we do in our approach with each and every job. Whether it’s a residential project or commercial, new construction or historic, we seek to honor tradition and progress in all that we do. 
Here, in this French Quarter residence, we’ve created a distressed lime plaster finish that is both beautiful and functional – the plaster will breath and last in our humid environment – and displays artistically exposed brick. In this space, we, also stained the beams, the ceiling, selected the colors of the cabinets, and delivered the finishes in the bathroom. More soon…

Here’s another special area from our recent luxury condo remodel just outside the French Quarter on Basin St. Our clients wanted something special and unique created in this total bathroom remodel. The showstopper is our hand-painted Chinoiserie mural. We also selected the tile in the shower/tub, the fixtures, the countertop, and lighting pendants as well as the floor and custom-built vanity (not pictured). Hey – we all spend a good amount of time in the bathroom – might as well be a cool space, too!

Instagram post 17856443164535314 More from our New Orleans luxury condo remodel on Basin St.! Here’s a shot of the completely reenvisioned kitchen. We had the barstools custom made and upholstered with a custom fabric. We selected the new quartz countertop, the kitchen sink and fixtures, and the striking lighting pendants. The lights are hung from a reclaimed antique door that we restored and suspended from the high (16-foot) ceilings to give the kitchen area more intimacy. For similar reasons, we built and added an upper level of cabinets increasing their height. The cabinets were refinished and repainted in a trendy blue tone that compliments the plaster wall finish in the living room and on the bar façade. We also took the antique map and removed it’s original mounting. We gave it an antique and “floating” look by using antique brass upholstery pins. More soon!

Instagram post 17853931486559332 Our work on this luxury condo remodel just outside the French Quarter on Basin St. is now complete! And, we’ve produced a special space! Here, you can see the living room with numerous components and appointments we delivered. There is the dynamic layered plaster finish that shows terrific movement and glistens in the light. We handled all the furniture considerations including the reupholstered couch with a selected custom fabric, a specially built coffee table designed to fit the clients’ two ottomans underneath, and the reconfigured and reupholstered banquette with custom fabric. We selected the lighting throughout the condo. Here, you can see one of two Bevolo lanterns on the wall, for example. We selected the frames and installed the unit’s artwork, as well! More from the rest of the space coming soon!

Instagram post 17883908065410593 Yesterday, we had the great pleasure of spending our morning at a Vieux Carré Commission Foundation seminar on preservation featuring several New Orleans master craftsmen. One of them was master plasterer Jeff Poree. He has graciously spent time sharing his knowledge and experience with me as well as working on projects together. He is a fifth generation plasterer with knowledge and skill that has been passed down over those generations. He, like his antecedents, has worked on countless historical structures in the city. To this day, he carries on the tradition of working to restore and preserve our architectural heritage.

Here’s more form the luxury condo project we’re putting the finishing touches on just outside the French Quarter in New Orleans! This is the bedroom where we created a 2-color metallic plaster finish in the style of broken ombre. The finish really pops in the sunlight and makes the space warm and comfortable. Also, it compliments the beaded pendant lights – one of the few features held over in the unit from before the extensive remodel we delivered. More soon!
