Fancy green in New Orleans

I just love this place. Green trellis on the walls? It makes me feel like I am peering into a Parisian apartment with treillage room.

This elegant antebellum house is actually located in New Orleans’ French Quarter.

The home is owned by Peter Rogers who was one of the original “Mad Men” – a 1960’s era ad creator.  Rogers bought the place and then renovated to his own unique tastes.

He went for a zesty punch-factor with zebra stripes, black and white checked floors, and Kermit the Frog green paint.

And just to keep it fresh: deer antler chandelier and accents…

The Kermit green can be found in pops throughout the house, like on the kitchen chair padding (the homeowner’s original color inspiration)…

This New Orleans home was featured in the May 2013 issue of Architectural Digest Magazine.

Owner Peter Rogers tells AD that his décor was inspired after a visit to Villa Trianon in Versailles, France.

My favorite image is this shot from one of the home’s balconies:

The photo seems like it could have been taken from some pied-à-terre in an old European city.

I’m partial to green rooms, and was always a big fan of Kermit, so I come naturally to the conclusion that Mr. Rogers has very good taste.
