Decorate Your Apartment With Local Art

Decorating your Metairie apartment with local art is a wonderful thing to do! Buying local art helps support local artists within your community, and it adds a regionally distinct flair to the aesthetics of your apartment.

One of our favorite local artists is the eccentric French sign-maker Simon Hardeveld. You may have seen his work all around town – in bars, restaurants, homes, and shop fronts. Simon has made a name for himself by capturing the essence of the city’s informal wisdom on his signs, which add a relaxing and cheerful atmosphere to any space.

Where can you find local art? The best places to shop for and purchase local art are at festivals and weekend markets. Two local markets that consistently feature arts and crafts booths are Freret Market, and OCH Art Market.
