An article by journalist and Newsweek contributing editor Julia Reed chronicles the process of decorating her historic home in New Orleans's Garden District. The Greek Revival house, subject of her acclaimed memoir The House on First Street (Harper Collins, 2009), was built around 1847. Prior to moving from New York City to New Orleans, Reed had befriended a number of major New York interior designers, with whom she consulted on the project.  As noted in the caption to the photos accompanying the article, "The pochoir prints in the front parlor are by [E.A.] Séguy…" The four prints, from Séguy's series on insects and on butterflies, were purchased from the George Glazer Gallery. We usually have prints from these series in stock -- view them here: Insects | Butterflies.

Julia Reed also writes for Vogue, The New York Times and Southern Accents and makes regular appearances on MSNBC and CNN. At the time this article was written, she was chair of the Board of Trustees of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

The article was also published online at Elle Décor's web site.
