Virtual Shotgun House Tour: Explore the home of Dee Speed (Bonus House!)

Click here to register for this Zoom webinar.

Explore this petite jewel box of a house owned by talented designer Dee Speed. Her 1,465-square-foot, two-bedroom Creole cottage in the Faubourg Marigny dates to at least 1887 and was once a store/bakery as well as a residence. After repairing structural issues and water and termite damage, she has decorated the home in rich colors, lush fabrics and treasured family antiques. Preserving the house’s patina, including the original wide-plank wood floors and the non-functioning fireplace between the sitting room and master bedroom, was important to Speed. “I wanted you to see and feel the history of this part of the Marigny, the story of these homes and what old New Orleans was like for the working-class men and women who lived in this neighborhood,” she said. “I wanted imperfect knots in the wood beneath my bare feet. It’s character with history and meaning.”

This event is free to attend. Suggested donation of $25. For more details about this house and all of the homes featured on PRC’s 2021 Shotgun House Tour, check out the Shotgun House Design Guide, which is included with a donation of $25 or greater. The guide is filled with 3-D tours and detailed information about each home’s paint colors, materials, products and more.
