A Collector's Maximalist New Orleans Home — House Tour

Name: Carla Williams
Location: "New Marigny," Seventh Ward — New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 2,500 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

Carla may have been born and raised in Los Angeles, but New Orleans blood courses through her veins. "I grew up with all these New Orleans ladies," Carla says while pointing to her grandmother Thelma and four great aunts in a black and white photograph. Though her mother's family left the Crescent City to settle in California in the 1940s, New Orleans continued to loom large in their lives. "We grew up with everything New Orleans in Los Angeles — the people, the culture, the accents, the plants, the architecture, the food — we even got our seafood from a market owned by a New Orleanian in LA," she explains.
