When Julie Bledsoe of Dwell Designed Construction first took on this stunning project, there was no set-in-stone vision to work toward. Instead, the end product ebbed and flowed with each decision made. “Out of all the homes I’ve ever worked on from the very beginning alongside an architect and a client, this one was the most fluid in terms of just taking ideas and words and trying to form them into a home,” explains Bledsoe. Even with relatively few visual examples and no set style, this majestic manor turned out to be one of a kind with an array of eclectic characteristics grounded with a French influence that can be traced back to the homeowner’s time spent in the city of New Orleans.
