Brunch & Bubbles

We are super excited to be participating in Gambit's Brunch and Bubbles event at New Orleans Auction Galleries! Shaun Smith Home as well as 5 other local designers will get to design vignettes incorporating furniture from the auction house with some of our own pieces. 

The whole idea is to get people interested and aware of auctions. Many feel intimidated by attending an auction when really you can get some pretty amazing pieces at reasonable prices - not to mention it's a great experience! 

This event will be tons of fun and did we mention there's champagne!? You can never go wrong with some bubbly! So come on out January 19th and have some fun with us!

Happy Bidding!

All About Rope...

We were pleased to see a trend we've been noticing - rope - featured throughout Tom Felicia's home in House Beautiful. 

We immediately thought of our acrylic cubes with rope handles when seeing his handrail. 

And what do we spy below, perched on the console table!? 

None other than our rope cloche!

Check out his whole house HERE. It's beautiful!

Acrylic Lovin'

We are all about all things acrylic these days at Shaun Smith Home! So much so, that we ordered these lovelies for the shop:

Fluffy Cube - acrylic base with angora fur - how fun!

The moment these guys hit the shop floor everyone was in love! We placed 3 of them in front of our clients sofa: 

Our client has an extra long sofa, about 9 feet? So we were able to fit 3 cubes in front as coffee tables. 

We think it looks great! And don't worry, we're ordering more this week!

Blanche's Boudoir Redone - Shaun Smith Style!

A little known fact about the Shaun Smith Team - we are all OBSESSED with The Golden Girls. We quote them, we discuss their fashion sense and of course we engage in never ending conversations about their decor! 

So after one too many slices of cheesecake last night while lounging on our Lanai, we decided to redecorate Blanche's Boudoir. Let's face it - she's the most fabulous of them all! 

Below is what we would do: 
(everything is available through Shaun Smith Home - of course!)

We think it would look FAB! What do you think!?

We thank y'all for being our friends!

Fun Before & After: A Clients Great Room

We wanted to share with y'all a project we are in the middle of working on. Before & afters are always fun so take a look below at the blank canvas we got to work with for this beautiful home! 


Opposite view of the Great Room - it looks out to a gorgeous pool!

And another view:

As you can see from the above images, we literally had a blank canvas to work with.

On "Install Day" we brought our movers over and did the whole room in one day! A very HGTV/BRAVO type day indeed - a broken vase, dog escaping the house, etc. but we all survived and the house is looking gorgeous!


We LOVE the way the room came out! Very true to the Shaun Smith aesthetic - classic, with a masculine feel and a modern take on traditional. 

We can't wait to share the rest of the house once it's complete.

An interview with one of our favorite artists - Eddie Granger

Greetings! Betsey here from the shop!

We just got some new art in from the wonderfully talented local artist Eddie Granger. His latest works are very fluid with great color and texture. They are made with crayons broken into little pieces. No two pieces are alike and the patterns that come through are quite beautiful. 


Eddie is always pushing himself as an artist and experimenting with new mediums and context.  I love seeing what he's doing next and thought it would be great to interview him: 

What inspires your works?

Being an existentialist, I constantly question and observe the context of our lives. With the use of recycled materials, phrases, and imagery of the common consciousness, I create a composition that sparks curiosity in my subjects; a curiosity which challenges the mundane and highlights the abnormal. 
My work has the ability to evoke the proverbial positivity of light, while touching upon, and sometimes engulf, the fragility found in our darkest fears and desires. It acts as a vessel of conscious awareness of the subliminal messaging of our society. Given the broad range of human experience, the form my art takes - painting, drawing, installation, et. al. - depends on that which I feel to be most influentially receptive. 

Which of your artwork pieces is your favorite?

It wouldn't be fair to say I have a favorite piece because I like all of my pieces equally. Some have stronger meanings and some were at a different focus in my life. Each time I create a series of work it tends to steer me into a new direction and allows me to further progress and evolve into the next series. I always try to evolve and show people what I'm thinking and show them something different.

Is there an artist you relate to?

I like the works of Damien Hirst and Frank Stella. Both Artist influence the aesthetic and quality of my work, both gain value and notability as an artist by constant evolution through their work.

What would you call your style?

I'd say it's abstract, but it's crude and has a playful optimism. My current work takes on the face of an abstract mural. It has a dimensional, lyrical abstraction to it, and some people often ask me if there is a tribal flare to it. This may come from my sensitivity to culture and open minded spirituality.


How long have you been painting/drawing/etc?

I've been painting/drawing since I was about 5 years old. I got myself into more articulate materials other than just the ordinary when I started college.

What types of art do you prefer?

I like all sorts of art, when it is done well. I like art that is progressive and can show me something different and mundane rather than just the ordinary. The art world is constantly changing and we should always look ahead and not back. Art doesn't have to follow a certain style or follow our early predecessors.

You can view more of Eddie's work at and here at Shaun Smith Home.

We Love Garden Stools!

Garden stools are such a beautiful and functional piece of furniture that are practical and durable. We love to use them as coffee tables, cocktail tables or around a pool. They're great because they even double as extra seating! 

Turquoise Garden Stool $525

We were excited to see our turquoise garden stool featured in this months issue of Traditional Home!

We also just got a new shipment in with 4 new extra large white garden stools too! We will post the pictures to our "shop" page once they are photographed.
