A Beautifully Strange Home in New Orleans
This isn’t my ‘typical’ pictorial but I love how brave Miranda Lake is with her use of colors. When she acquired the empty lot next door to her, just before Katrina hit in 2005, she was able to add a swimming pool and transform the property into the compound it is today. It is a rarity in New Orleans for a modest home to have such a large yard. It’s hard to believe the grounds that surround Miranda’s home started out as an empty patch of grass surrounded by a chain link fence. Miranda’s unique artistic vision comes to life on this property as you can see with her fully restored ’62 Shasta camper trailer and a 1952 double-decker bus, which she describes as “one big shiny, giant happy pill you can actually get inside of,” are parked alongside a stunning lap pool. This home is bold, rich and filled with funky trinkets I love!
Thank you Miranda Lake and Jacqueline Marque.
