Her passion for decorating her first home while she lived in Texas led her and her husband to open an antique business, Rue Toulouse Antiques. After moving back home to New Orleans, she began her new business designing and selling locally inspired t-shirt's and accessories. Her continued passion for Antiquities and her ever evolving home renovations has led Sarah to interior design. She worked on a renovation project with Wendy on her home which lead them to realize how great they worked together as a team.
