This is my favorite photograph that I took of the plantation house. Unfortunately, it really doesn't translate well to Instagram. When viewed larger the richness of the colours & texture come alive. This room has it all: light, bousillage, 18th century framing, rear view of a chimney, various period architectural elements/details, etc. I could write a whole paper about it. Sometimes you just walk into a space and feel it. I felt this room. . . . #document #preservation #plantation #18thcentury #architecture #ruralarchitecture #interior #interiordesign #louisiana #thesouth #vernaculararchitecture #vernaculardesign #oldbuilding #historichouse #historicarchitecture #preserve #bousillage #framing #riverparishes #light #southernliving #louisianalife #history #followyourbliss

To everyone who advocated for the Keystone Pipeline being built...🤦🏽‍♂️🤨 🔹The potential for a spill was the most basic argument that was posed in opposition...and now that it has happened it shouldn’t come as a surprise. 🤷🏽‍♂️ 🔹Although there isn’t much that can be said because the same ppl who supported it are the same ones who don’t think global warming is real anyway 💥🤔🤡 — #keystone #pipeline #trump #obama #congress #usa #oil #environment #globalwarming #preservation #earth #world #globe #love #peace #epa #government #southdakota #news #faux #united #protest #commonsense #policy #republicans #independents #democrats
The beauty of smoke! Santa Barbara Swordfish smoked in our Wood Oven with Oak and Rosemary. Part will be used whole: part will be puréed with Farm Eggs and Olive Oil into a Tonnato emulsion to be served with Winter Squash and Mushrooms. #preservation #smokedfood #swordfish #knowyourfisherman #eatlocal #tonnato
A look inside the former #HotelMartineau, the former outside northern wall which has now part of the inside of the #carriageway complex on #MurrayStreet at #ParentStreet in the #BywardMarket. I love these Welsh-style brass #dragons by the doors! 🐲🏛🐲 "Hotel Martineau - Built around 1872, this imposing #stone building consists of three floors and a roof topped by eight skylights. It had two large gates for horse carriages. “"They are also still visible today," says the chief archivist at the University of Ottawa, Michel Prévost. “Originally, the hotel had 70 rooms. Subsequently, the hotel was divided into four separate small hotels to accommodate the low-cost loggers and trappers passing through the capital. “Edward Eugene Martineau - The #hotel is named after a very influential figure in Ottawa in the second half of the 19th century. “"In addition to being a prosperous merchant and innkeeper, Edward Eugene Martineau served as alderman for 16 years. In addition, from 1872 to 1873, he became the second French mayor of Ottawa, after Joseph Turgeon Balsura, says Prévost."” http://www..waymarking.com/waymarks/WMGB1G_Htel_Matineau_Martineau_Hotel_Ottawa_Ontario 🐲🏛🐲 #Ottawa #613history #ottawaarchitecture #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #LowertownOttawa #DowntownOttawa #stonebuilding #dragon #heritagebuilding #preservation #restoration #Canada150
Just four short blocks south of the Bruyère Hospital down #ParentStreet on #MurrayStreet in Lowertown is another historic #stone building, the #MartineauHotel, now incorporated into the #Cariageway complex. 🏛 "One of the most elegant historical buildings in the city - The Carriageway is located at the corner of Murray and Parent Streets, in the heart of Ottawa’s #BywardMarket area. The Carriageway has six floors of office space, four of which open to a spectacular atrium with exceptional views and abundant natural light warmly complemented by a limestone wall finish. Built in 1872, by the then Ottawa Mayor Eugene Martineau, the building originally housed four separate hotels each with its own tavern. The central walkway of the site was the entrance for the horse and carriages of hotel guests, giving the building its present name – The Carriageway. Designated a heritage property in 1978, fire gutted the structure during restoration the following year. Now fully restored, the 50,000 square foot building has earned its place among the City’s most sought-after and unique office buildings with its innovative office and specialty retailers. Each year, The Carriageway also participates in Doors Open Ottawa, a special program that celebrates the City’s architectural heritage." http://thecarriageway.buildingengines.com/node/208 🏛 #Ottawa #613history #ottawaarchitecture #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #LowertownOttawa #BywardMarket #DowntownOttawa #stonebuilding #heritagebuilding #preservation #restoration #Canada150
The #MartineauHotel on #MurrayStreet at #ParentStreet in the #BywardMarket, four short blocks south of the Bruyère Hospital, is now part the #Cariageway complex, modernized and expanded under the guidance of Toronto-based SAI Strasman Architects: 🏛 “THE CARRIAGEWAY - Modern Addition and Restoration to a Heritage Property “Over the years the Martineau Hotel, built in 1872, fell into disrepair and was eventually gutted by fire. The only proposal that made economic sense in restoring the Hotel was to turn the original structure into office space and add additional office space to the rear to support the cost of restoration. “The design concept links the two buildings with an atrium and places all of the required services in the new structure so that none of the heritage structure had to be sacrificed to modern day mechanical spaces. The building takes its name from the carriageways that originally provided access for the horse carriages to the court and stables in the rear of the property. The two carriageways are duplicated in the new structure.” http://strasmanarch.com/projects/the-carriageway/ 🏛 #Ottawa #613history #ottawaarchitecture #igersOttawa #instaOttawa #LowertownOttawa #DowntownOttawa #stonebuilding #heritagebuilding #preservation #restoration #Canada150
It's amazing how each and everyone of us love something about living, at least just enough to hold on to it. It's even more amazing that out of all the ways the cosmos could've happened, you ended up in the universe that contains what you love. Very coincidental. If you disagree and say that you don't love anything about existing then you are lier simply because you are reading this. You've had a choice this entire time and you've choose to live. You choose to live either because you love something in life, or you love the anxious feeling of not knowing what is coming next, for you may make it beautiful. For you can make it beautiful, but you must do it yourself.🌎 #selfpreservation #preservation #selfgod #god #satan #satanic #satanism #devil #lavey #laveyansatanism #satanicbible #blackmetal #satanicpoetry #satanicphilosphy #life #existentialism #existence #cosmos #universe #mushrooms #shrooms #lsd #psychedelic #antonlavey #satanicchurch #churchofsatan #philosphy
