Sylvia T. Designs is the premier native New Orleans decorative arts firm. We have been honoring tradition and progress and delivering our clients’ vision for 25 years!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here’s a shot from a powder room we just finished in a residence in the Greater New Orleans area. We applied a metallic layered strie’ finish to the walls and a soft metallic glazing to the ceiling. You can also see the custom, hand-painted decorative element we added to the front of the vanity. The room now has a warm, yet crisp ambience that stands in stark contrast to the original, plainly painted white space.

Here’s a recent project we wrapped up not too long ago! Among other elements, we delivered this beautiful plaster finish on a large living room wall. It is a textured plaster where we achieved stone-like effects. The look is capped off by using a gold metallic wax that gives it lovely motion and makes it sparkle – especially in this sizable space across from large windows and glass doors.

We’re about to get started on this special new construction residential project! We’ll be delivering various elements in the home. However, the centerpiece is a stunning two-story feature wall in the great room. The client wants a striking marble appearance that is deeply veined. We will be using a gorgeous Grassello lime plaster to achieve the desired look. Stay tuned to see which of these samples makes the cut!

This was such a cool and challenging project in this Old Metairie residence! We created a custom stencil design with leaves and wisteria. Because the powder room is under a curved stair, it has odd angles. We decided that to achieve a cohesive feel that flows and feels larger, we would apply a pearlescent metallic plaster on the walls and ceiling. Then, we would layer the stencils with a soft metallic look starting on the ceiling and falling gently onto the walls. We left the center of the ceiling open with the leaf work softly framing it to appear as a clearing in the forest. The result makes the space feel more open and comfortable, even though it is small and irregularly shaped.

Nearing completion! (Check out our recent post from before we got started…) We carefully and lovingly repaired the plaster walls in this historic Uptown New Orleans residence. The owner wanted to preserve and, where needed, replicate the original color scheme complete with its aged look stemming from years and layers of plaster and paint. We painstakingly matched the look and expertly applied traditional mineral paint and lime wash methods to get it just right. We’ll just add a bit of the desired blue tone and that’s a wrap! Stay tuned…

Hey All! The fabulous Hotel St. Vincent is open in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans! So, is their terrific restaurant, “San Lorenzo.” Here, we delivered the cool floor design (one of many things we did at the hotel… More soon!) After some much needed TLC on the aged wood floor, we executed the hand-painted, multi-layered stencil finish that boasts a cool harlequin design with contrasting white and burgundy tones!

It is always an honor and a pleasure to be entrusted with a project in any space, but it is especially so in historic ones! We can’t wait to get started on this project in an Uptown New Orleans residence. Here, we will repair the plaster walls. The owner wishes to keep the existing color scheme and aged look. So, after the repair is complete, we use a mineral paint to complete the job. Much of the expertise, beyond the actual application, lies in both matching the colors accurately and then ensuring the paint is mixed to get them just right!

From commercial to residential, from historic spaces to new construction, we honor tradition and progress on every job, large or small, every day. Let us know how we can make your space a work of art!
 
Here, we are delivering a Marmorino lime plaster finish to the first level halls of the new Hotel St. Vincent located in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. This is the second and final coat, fresh after application. The walls will dry to reveal a striking yet subtle finish when all is said and done (stay tuned!) This historic space, a former orphanage, is now a swank 75-room hotel with all the amenities! We’ve brought our skill and artistry to numerous components in the about-to-open property. More soon!

Hey All – We loved doing this special floor project so much, we wanted to show you the start-to-finish! It’s one of many deliverables we’re making happen at the soon-to-be-open Hotel St. Vincent in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans!

This custom harlequin pattern design merges cool burgundy and white tones over a (well-prepped!) aged wood base. It’s part stencil and part hand-painted in layers with a protective clear coat to ensure durability for what will be the hotel’s restaurant floor in this historic space!
