In Sarah and Spencer Ott’s New Orleans home, opulent antiques are paired with playful colors and prints that convey a festive spirit throughout the holidays and all-year round.
A neighborhood bursting with Greek Revivals, Creole cottages, and Queen Anne Victorians, Sarah Ott’s stately, redbrick Georgian—located just a block off of historic St. Charles Avenue—is a rare commodity. It’s not your typical Uptown New Orleans home, but typical is anything but Sarah’s style. As an accessory designer, she has always had a flair for color and quirk, but as a born-and-bred Southern girl, she is deeply connected to history and heritage.
