BlogTourNOLA ~ Day 3 ~ An Exclusive World of Art and Antiques

Walking through the Garden District yesterday, as part of the tour with Shaun Smith that I shared yesterday, one of our stops was at the office and design shop of the one of New Orleans' most iconic interior designers..  the very stylish and extremely talented Gerrie Bremermann.

This is where the magic happens! Gerrie Bremermann office and studio, fabric sample library
with some *vintage* fabrics that come back to life when needed!

The eclectic and absolutely timeless mix and match of old and new, once again is ever present in Gerrie's design as well as throughout the selection and placement of every piece of art and furniture throughout her store on Magazine Street.
It was such an incredible honor to hear more about Gerrie's desing, and how "she is busier than ever at age when most are at least 20 years into retirement (a lady never tells her age!)

Modern Bed and Bedside table - Designed by Gerrie and relaunched again now, available from her site on 1stDibs.

Listening to Gerrie speak about how she finds her pieces not only in travels, but in auctions, I couldn't help but have her design style and the homes in the Garden District fresh in my mind when I accidentally meet the CEO Ashton Thomas of the New Orleans Auction Galleries as he is opening the preview cocktail party in the Warehouse District before tomorrow's auction.

As auctions are always very much at my roots, I thought I would share some of the absolutely stunning pieces that stood out to me, but I encourage you all to visit the catalogue online to see which you may want to buy for yourself or your next design project!

Can't you just imagine any one of these pieces as Gerrie uses them in her interior design?
Look at some of these images of Gerrie Bremermann interior design over the many years she has been perfecting the art of classical elegance.

Please visit the Auction in New Orleans or Online, and be quick! The auction starts tomorrow and ends on April 21st. You won't want to miss it!

This last image with the pair of trumeaus on each side of the fireplace is by Ann Holden and architect, Ken Tate. Ann is Gerrie's daughter. Apparently design genius runs in the family!

You can visit Gerrie Bremermann and her lovely team, on Magazine Street as the office and shop is open to the public and really an amazing treat.
