Bayou Delisle Home

Pass Christian, Mississippi

This raised coastal home is situated on 5 acres with views across Bayou Delisle and the Wolf River. Locating in a flood zone required that the home be raised, providing an opportunity for outdoor entertaining space around and below the home. Upstairs the house provides views from porches on the front and back. Open living spaces on the first floor are bookended with master and guest suites on either end of the house. The upper floor accommodates added guests with a bedroom suite and sitting area providing additional spaces for nieces and nephews. The bridge connecting these areas spans the tall living/dining room and provides shelving and window seats to read and take in the view of the Bayou and river beyond.

My husband and I worked with Nora on the redesign and updating of our kitchen. Nora did a great job of taking our kitchen into the present day without taking away from or altering the style of our 1860’s cottage. Nora was a great help in rethinking the way we use our rooms, suggesting turning the formal parlor into our dinning room which resulted in a fresh more open layout of our home accented by her paint color selections.

Nora was a dream to work with and did an outstanding job on our sorority chapter room! The women are beyond excited about their new design and everything was done professionally and on time. I would certainly use her services in the future! I can not say enough about how pleased we are!

After working with Ed and Nora on several historical projects, I have come to greatly admire their respect for the existing structure as well as respecting their clients’ wishes. The attention to detail is unmatched and their designs blend seamlessly between old and new. The results are always happy clients.

My husband and I worked with Nora on the interior re-design of our home and she was absolutely fantastic. She did a great job identifying our style and blending it with her vision of what our house could become. We are thrilled with the results! Nora also helped us make design choices on window treatments and furniture upholstery. She was very professional and her expertise saved us countless hours and energy. Nora put us at ease and we never felt awkward when we had to re-evaluate an idea and stick within our budget. She offered a range of options at different price points. Most importantly, she helped us make the most of the treasured items we already owned and transformed this house into our home. Her ideas, eye for design, and talent make Nora a real joy to work with!
