My friend Valerie, the fabulous visual vamp, has moved to the second round in Apartment Therapy's annual color contest. Her home is beautiful single in the Garden District that used to be a home for wayward girls (and with the Vamp in residence, the tradiont continues), and Valerie has decorated it with lots of style and color. The most colorful room is her office, above, the former dining room. Decorated in what she desribes as "modern Creole," the room features tomato red walls, lush aqua silk draperies, and a shot of chartruese linen. If you have a chance, please support a New Orleans lady at the apartment therapy contest by voting HERE. The voting lasts for the next 24 hours.
