Designer and antiques dealer Tara Shaw will be releasing her first book, “Soul of the Home: Designing with Antiques” later this month, and in eager anticipation, today we are touring her beautiful New Orleans home as featured recently by One Kings Lane. Tara is a respected supplier of French and European antiques for a host of AD100 and Elle Decor A-listers, including Bobby McAlpine, Mary McDonald, and Bunny Williams. Soul of the Home helps readers understand how to select the best antiques and how to use them in a variety of decor schemes. The book presents never-before-published spaces from Tara’s portfolio and reveals her favorite antique-hunting spots throughout Europe. Anecdotes from years of treasure hunting are accompanied by images of rare and precious finds, with text that decodes just how to choose the right pieces and display them in a contemporary interior.
