Belle Chambre

My belle chambre and favorite room in my home is my bedroom. For the spring, I have removed the heavier comforter and replaced it with a lighter traditional bedspread. I maintain a consistent color scheme of black, cream, and gray, so that I do not have to change the entire room each season.

“You can take the girl out of New Orleans. But, you cannot take New Orleans out of the girl.” These statements are definitely true of me. I am sure that many of you can replace New Orleans with your home town. In honor of the city that I love, I created a street name poster.
