A fresh approach to decorating with antiques

(NEW ORLEANS, LA) - Jan. 8, 2013 - On Saturday, January 19, 2013, New Orleans Auction Galleries, in partnership with Gambit Weekly and Martin Wine Cellar, will present their Bidders, Brunch & Bubbles Auction.

Utilizing a mixture of modern and rustic design components with simple and clean lines, Shaun captures New Orleans living in a way that rejuvenates, inspires, and encompasses the essence of living well.
  • Elizabeth Sullivan - After living in Mexico and New York City with extensive travels throughout the world, Elizabeth chose New Orleans as home base. She shares her love of modern design with residential clients and operates Interior Designs, Inc. on Magazine Street.

"It is important to remember that auctions can be enjoyed by everyone:  from the novice collector to the experienced connoisseur; from those furnishing their first home or apartment to those enhancing a private collection," said New Orleans Auction Galleries CEO and owner, Susan D. Krohn. "We appreciate the talented designers who are helping us demonstrate how easy it is to build an impressive collection of furniture, art and antiques, no matter your budget."
