Mardi Gras: Acorn Cottage {Living Room}

 Because we live in the Uptown Mardi Gras bubble, it is always fun to decorate for the season. The colors purple, green, and gold are found throughout my home. 

Today, I'd like you to step inside and see the living room in its Carnival splendor. 

On the coffee table, a Zulu warrior {from Judy at the Rink} is joined by porcelain boxes and a Baobab candle in purple {from Sotre}, one of the colors of the season.

A jester sits watch on the King's crown chadelier.

A new Carnival parade pillow purchased locally adds just the right amount of color and spirit.

My favorite papier mache' figures purchased from Judy at the Rink years ago sit atop one of my favorite furniture pieces.

Rex and other krewe ducals and medallions are pinned to a Mardi Gras toile pillow which rests on an antique chair covered in Hazelnut's New Orleans Delphine toile.

Mardi Gras in the Living Room, y'all!


  1. Love it, Ron!! Those paper mache' figures are really special,I think. Are those white slipcovers? They are wonderful? Did you find them online or have them custom made? I have a sofa and chair I need to slipcover in white and, if I can't find anything, may attempt it myself.
    Happy Sunday night- xo Diana
