Dream home ....

Wednesday, October 12

I am mesmerized by the grandeur and mystery of this 170-year-old home located in New Orleans' French Quarter. The house belongs to Josephine Sacabo and her husband Dalt Wonk. The former owner was a hoarder, and the couple bought the home and everything in it including birdcages, brass chandeliers, wooden shutters, old doors, vacuum cleaners and other oddities when he passed away. I love the home's exposed brick walls, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, the spiral staircase, and the living room with its water-stained walls.
