Kristine Flynne talks New Orleans Style and Her Favorite Shade of Blue
Based out of New Orleans, Kristine and her architect husband make the perfect team by designing classic and functional spaces. They turn overlooked spaces like the laundry room or pantry into functional and beautiful rooms.We caught up with Kristine and learned so many design tips on IGTV (view here). Read all the highlights below.
How do you describe your design aesthetic?
I love the French transitional/classic look with pops of color which leads me to your hardware. Taking something plain and bringing some life to it, like an old nook and turning it into wine storage.
How do you use gold in your designs?
I am obsessed with gold.
Trends always come back and are tweaked a little but my favorite finish is the brushed brass.
I have it all over my house in light fixtures and hardware.
How has New Orleans influenced your design?
New Orleans is about comfort food, easy living… I find I design spaces to make them comfortable, functional, and pretty.
Beautiful hardware can completely change the look of any cabinet! It is a great way to update a piece without investing a lot of time..

You are known for your blue front door! What is your favorite blue paint to use?
Favorite light blue is Sherwin Williams Beacon Gray. I love how calming it is.
What is your favorite room to design?
I enjoy decorating the overlooked places like the laundry room and pantry. As women, mom, secretary, chauffeur I like to make their most used spaces functional and pretty… not overwhelming. Everything has a spot and place.
