Valorie Hart is an experienced interior designer and decorator and writes for the popular design blog The Visual Vamp. Hart’s writings have also appeared in New Orleans Homes & Lifestyles, GO NOLA, and House of Fifty Ideas for Inspired Living. She considers herself a “New New”—a New Yorker transplanted in New Orleans—and lives in a restored antique shotgun house in New Orleans’ Irish Channel neighborhood with her husband, Alberto.

  • Classic not conservative; modern not trendy; art over artifice; style plus taste; elegance over glitz; formal over stuffy; generous over lavish; simple not plain; risky not reckless; smart enough to be different, and learned all the rules in order to use them or break them.

  • Style, wit, warmth, and color. Valorie's tool box includes: use what you have; shop high and low; mix in art, vintage, modern, and antiques; combine the refined with the humble.

  • House calls to diagnose your style. Online house calls are welcome. Use the diagnostic proposal on your own, or hire Valorie to do the job, from just restyling what you have. Sometimes rearranging the furniture, and a small refresh can be enough of a change.

  • Hire Hart to take on an entire interior design and decoration project from choosing paint colors, floor plans, and soft furnishings (fabrics and window treatments, etc.), along with shopping for furniture, art, and accessories.

  • Talent that travels, and open to jobs and projects everywhere.
