Lisa Rickert, CEO of furniture retailer Ave Home and paint brand Jolie Home, has listed her fabulous custom home in New Orleans for $4.9 million. The entrepreneur, alongside her husband, Scott and children, built the 10,000 square foot residence in 2016 on a 0.34 acre property overlooking Lake Pontchartrain. Rickert sat down with Elle Decor just last June, dishing out details behind her design choices. “My husband had one request when I was designing our home–that he has a leather sofa in the family room. The cognac leather sofa with a double chaise lounge has plenty of room to snuggle up with our kids, and no one is fighting over the good spot,” Rickert explained to Elle Decor. “Our master bedroom is by far my favorite room in the entire house. It is my sanctuary, my calm, my peaceful place where I can unwind. The master suite overlooks the lake, so I really wanted to incorporate elements of water and nature. The light fixtures used throughout the closet, bedroom, and master bathroom are made with shells and raw crystals.” 

Lisa revealed her design choices for the show-stopping kitchen, “Our last home had custom painted French Grey cabinetry, which I loved, but I was ready for a bright white kitchen. I became obsessed with a black and brass Lacanche range, which is now the focal point of the room. I helped anchor it with an antique fireback from the 1800’s, featuring Napoleon’s coat of arms, so that the range was not the only dark contrasting element in an otherwise light space. I also chose hardwood floors for the kitchen versus the white marble that we used throughout the rest of the first floor, so that the kitchen did not feel too washed out.” Blending French Mediterranean and traditional design, the three-storey home includes 5 bedrooms, 5.5+ bathrooms, an office, library, home theatre, multiple indoor & outdoor living spaces, 12′ ceilings and beautiful finishes. The grand master suite spans the width of the home taking in wonderful lakefront views. Additional features include impeccable gardens, a porcelain tile pool, outdoor kitchen and extensive patio space, a 2-car garage and long gated driveway. It’s on the market for $4.9 million with Rachael Kansas of Re/Max. Read the full Elle Decor article here
