Style Profile: Shaun Smith

Every now and then you see design that looks fresh, modern, classic and timeless all at once. Shaun Smith, an interior designer from New Orleans, seems to embody all those qualities in his work. Against beautiful white walls, each space has eye-catching detail. His incorporation of antiques, mixed in with modern accessories and clean lines, lends itself to an ideal juxtaposition of style.

As a House Beautiful Next Wave designer to watch, you will surely want to make sure you know his work. His shop on Magazine Street in New Orleans is not something to be missed. I hope you enjoy my little glimpse into his collected world of chic.

The molding around the fireplace lends itself for an ideal spot for a mirror. The gilded table, animal print and flooding of light on white walls gives a traditional eclectic ambience.

I could live in this bathroom. Seriously. It has been awhile since I have seen an image that makes me so happy!

While the shutters, doors, columns, and light fixtures are absolutely stunning, it is the incredible glossy wood paneling on the ceiling that really packs the punch.
