New Orleans City Guide
New Orleans-based artist Mallory Page shares her favorite spots in The Big Easy. Known for her large-scale monochromatic paintings, Mallory's beautiful Julia Street studio is not to be missed on a trip to New Orleans. We also love to follow her Instagram for daily color inspiration.

VISIT

The Arts District has so many lovely Julia Street galleries. Be sure to also walk down Camp Street to museums like the CAC, The Ogden, and The National World War II Museum

My home neighborhood, Faubourg Marigny, has so many sweet spots to visit. I am always in Crescent Park, the newest public park on the water in New Orleans. It has lots of open space for long walks along the Mississippi River. My favorite Marigny/Bywater spots are Cake Café, The Franklin, Press Street Station, and Bacchanal

If you do nothing else, do not miss a visit to Preservation Hall, a very special jazz hall. Do make sure to make a reservation in advance!
 

STAY

The Ace Hotel has the dreamiest pool and such a vibrant location. I love having sunset cocktails at Alto and then hopping over to the shop Freda on my way to Seaworthy for dinner. For an after dinner pick me up, check out Drip Affogato Bar

SHOP

I have heard people refer to Jane Scott Hodges' Leontine Linens showroom as "The Mothership" and I think that's really the only way to describe it. There is nothing that beats the quality and refinement of their hand stitched linens - truly pieces that will last many a lifetime. 

Nadine Blake is a French Quarter shopping staple for unique local gifts and lovely visits with Nadine herself.

Sunday Shop is my favorite new shop for all things beautiful. They have vintage furniture, home accessories, and even a floral pick-a-petal arranging area.
