Sarah Ott


For over 20 years New Orleans native, Sarah Ott has had her hand in the design business.

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.
