I was in NOLA over the weekend with some friends and couldn’t help being inspired by the opulent elegance of the Ritz Carlton, our home for the weekend thanks to my friend Haisley Smith over at Brownell Travel.
The lobby. They update the giant floral arrangement weekly, the smell was intoxicating (all photos taken with my iphone).
The tea room slash bar.
I chatted with the concierge about the lobby scent and she informed me it was a special candle created for them by Amy’s hand poured Country Candles. Lo and behold there was a complementary candle in my room, just waiting for me to enjoy, no one else in our group received a candle so I felt pretty special. This is an incredible candle. Like a giant mason jar filled with silky yummy candle goodness.
I had to photograph the sconces on the way out Sunday, again, with the iphone.

I leave you with a web glamor shot of the courtyard. It rained most of the time we were there, but rain doesn’t really keep you from having a good time in New Orleans.
