Garden Cottage

MARK Carbon created the parterre in front of his 19th-century cottage. The large papier mache flowers on the porch were made by former float maker Brian Bush.

Damask-covered Italian chairs and a leather sofa highlight the red and loden tones of the Harouni painting above the sofa. Ecclesiastical candlesticks purchased from Bush Antiques provide ambient light when Carbon entertains at home. Carbon purchased the small Oriental rug with the house.

Gilded chairs with a floral motif and red silk upholstery and a Robert Gordy painting lend an irreverent touch to the master bedroom's traditional 19th-century backdrop.

Contemporary paintings by David Harouni provide a counterpoint to the adjacent living and dining rooms' antiques and collectibles. The Italian carved-wood dining table was purchased at an estate sale at the home of the late actor Walter Pidgeon. Next to the fireplace is a vargueno, cabinets with drawers and compartments used for holding jewels, documents and valuables; the piece above was used to highlight statuary in a church. The iron chandelier from Bush Antiques is thought to be circa-1920s. The shell also is from Bush Antiques.

Carbon designed and built the backyard chicken coop to house some of his 10 chickens. Container plants and a ground covering of pine mulch give a sense of lushness.

A panel of stained glass from a church is illuminated by the hall window behind it. The fringed floor lamp next to it was in Lenny Kravitz's French Quarter home before Carbon purchased it.
