Bayou Beauty: A Southern Cottage Home

A little love and tenderness—and a lot of hard work—turn a dilapidated Creole cottage into a soulful, sustainable retreat.

Madeleine Cenac and her crew lovingly restored the original parlor of this 19th-century cottage. The wood floor and ceiling are original, the plaster walls were authentically replicated, and the color scheme is true to the original.
