So you know, Valorie, right? Sure you do. Well if you don’t she’s a Visual Vamp and you should check out her smooth New Orleans style over here. She always has something clever up her sleeve.

Well you can Vote for The Vamp and for New Orleans!

In the Apartment Therapy Room For Color contest.You have to register to vote. Sorry. And now you have to vote again for those who have made it to the next round!

Visual Vamp Valorie Hart has made it to the next round with her spicy Modern Creole room.

She lives in New Orleans for ten years now, and brings her New York roots to her love for her adopted city of New Orleans.

The room you are looking at is her office. You peek through an original archway into her office, which is flanked by a pair of vintage skeleton charts. One of them sports a Mardi Gras mask . The color palette is Late Creole Tomato (a coral based red), Vibrant Turquoise, and Sophisticated Chartreuse. Generous built in shelves house her collection of design books.

A white cowhide rug makes the space cozy. A pair of pale aqua lamps with couture lampshades from Paris grace her desk, an antique table from France. Nestled into a corner is a Gris-Gris altar, filled with mementos found and given to her over the years. During Katrina, the home was spared, and many credit the power of this altar for saving it! So please vote! A vote for this room is a vote for New Orleans, as well as for The Visual Vamp! But please vote right away!

You only get 24 hours to cast your vote in this round. If we pull her through to the next round, you’ll be ready to make her a winner!

Go here to vote NOW! but remember you can only vote in this round on Wednesday October 21.
