At Home in New Orleans with Jane Scott Hodges

Jane Scott Hodges and Susanna Salk

As the founder and owner of Leontine Linens, Jane Scott Hodges is credited with reviving the art of couture linens for everyday use. With a contemporary spin on timeless traditions, her custom linens and bespoke monograms pair luxury with real life. And nowhere is this lifestyle more evident than in Jane Scott’s own stylish home. Please join Susanna and me for a trip to New Orleans, where Jane Scott has transformed her 19th century Greek Revival house into a color and art-filled family home that enthusiastically expresses her contagious joie de vivre!

Not only does Jane Scott’s company espouse updating tradition with bold scale and color, but she walks the walk in her own home. With the help of friend, designer Gwen Driscoll, Jane Scott has infused a serious dose of fun and creativity into her traditional New Orleans side-hall house.
