Following is editorial that accompanied selected images from Lee Ledbetter’s design for a French Quarter Residence:

True style never tries too hard. The most stylish rooms reveal who their owners are, not what magazines they read.

If you’ve done your homework, a finishing touch, such as flowers, can help bring it all together.

Collections can consist of valuable photographs…it’s how they’re displayed that makes them special.

In creating a display, pick objects that strongly contrast, either in shape, texture, or color, with the environments around them.
