Sometimes a fresh start can bring one back full circle. For Stephen LaRue, his return to New Orleans after a long hiatus presented an opportunity for a clean slate. As an interior designer, he has had numerous residences over the years with about as many different styles, most recently rather sleek and modern. Upon returning to NOLA, Stephen —a long with long-time friend Scott Peebles and pup Joe Bailey — took up residence in an 1870s camelback in the Irish Channel neighborhood. This time, he decorated with heirlooms collected from family estates in his native Mississippi, and from relatives in Florida and Texas.
