Yes, her four-bedroom property is Instagram-worthy.
"I have committed the last decade to helping others learn how to make life beautiful." That's how Lisa Rickert, the creative force behind the specialty furniture retailer Ave Home and the paint brand Jolie Home, describes her professional background.
But in addition to serving as a resource for others, Rickert has, without a doubt, made her own life beautiful, too. One example is her four-bedroom home in a New Orleans lakefront community. At 10,000 square feet, it's a reflection of all the design lessons she has mastered over the years, including those from her childhood days pretending to be an interior designer. "I was that kid who was always rearranging furniture, decorating, and painting walls and furniture," she says. Little did she know that would prove to be valuable training for her successful career in the design business today.
When she's not overseeing her multi-faceted businesses, Rickert is enjoying time with her husband, Scott, and their kids at home—an Instagram-worthy space with an alluring combination of French Mediterranean and transitional design. Adding to the home's visual interest are accents that showcase the couple's love of travel. For instance, there's a well-curated mix of furniture that spans from 18th-century French to mid-century modern, and one of their favorite finds is a rosewood Art Deco sideboard by Raphaël from a Paris flea market. "What I love most about interior design is the way in which you can completely transform a space when you understand balance, lines, and form layers with the use of texture, patterns, and color," Rickert says.
Here, Rickert shares how she created the New Orleans abode of her dreams.
Z: "Trump spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25 to congratulate him on his election. According to the official readout on Ukraine's presidency website, "Donald Trump is convinced that the new Ukrainian government will be able to quickly improve image of Ukraine, complete investigation of corruption cases, which inhibited the interaction between Ukraine and the USA." Toward the end of August, the White House reportedly was considering whether to block $250 million to support Ukraine’s military in its war against Russian-backed separatists. On Sept. 12, however, that funding was released, and even increased. Congressional pressure played a role, and it is unclear whether the whistleblower’s reported “promise” allegations, made soon after the Zelensky phone call, did as well. (On Friday, Zelensky’s office announced that he will meet with Trump next week.)" -------------- Jail time for Trump & Friends
