With an appreciation for the tradition of Carnival season as well as the festivities, Craig and Lisa Hebert’s favorite time of year is Mardi Gras. Attending various balls, parties and parades have inspired their tradition of collecting and displaying parade memorabilia and holiday décor that’s both rare and unique.

Hosting multiple celebrations at their home during Carnival time, including a Twelfth Night dinner to ring in the season, the Heberts trim their home in the traditional purple, green and gold. Each year the couple adds new touches and each year proves to be more spectacular than the last. This year, they enlisted the help of BRAVO Graphic Design and Home Staging for an extra special touch.

After purchasing their home in 2009, Craig and Lisa personalized the space by adding wood floors and custom drapery throughout the home. They also made improvements to the kitchen including the addition of a coffee nook, an ornate stove hood and a self-designed granite countertop island. Outside, the backyard was completely transformed from a green lawn to an oasis. With the creative talent of Scott Staimpel, owner of Tropical Pools and Palms, the Hebert’s retreat exceeded their expectations.

Combining each of their visions to create a space that they truly love, Craig and Lisa explain their style as traditional and country with an eclectic twist. Born and raised in Texas, Lisa paid homage to her roots by decorating the guest room with memorabilia from her rodeo and ranch days. Antique jewelry crucifixes and a mirror framed with material from cowboy boots, all hand crafted by Lisa’s parents, adorn this special space.
