An exhibition of photo-realist watercolor paintings of New Orleans from Stephan Hoffpauir, the architect-turned-fine artist, just opened at Cole Pratt Gallery and continues through April 25, 2010. The opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, April 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Ready for a little after-work drink on that porch?

For the screened porch sofa, how about this oh-so-lovely embroidered pillow designed by New Orleans artist Shelley Hesse? Click here to see all of the Hesse offerings at Anthropologie. The charcoal pillow is yet another thing that reminds me of Mrs. Delany and Her Circle.
