A handful of my photos from The Gallier house AKA Rue Royale.

This is the French Quarter home that Anne Rice based Louis Lestat and Claudia’s home on, and I had chills walking through the entire building. Much love to @i-want-my-iwtv for making me aware of the location. It was fantastic to visit.

I have captioned each photo with where/how they played into the series, based on my interpretation, the floor plan, and where things were angled in the film. If you want to see anymore of the photos I took/the explanations behind them, send me a message and I will make you another set.

Little fun fact about the house – everything green you see here (including the front of the house/the balcony railings) was originally dyed/painted with a color called Paris Green, that was primarily made of arsenic. The homes often killed their occupants within 10 years of arsenic poisoning, but for a bunch of vampires, it was perfectly fine.

(You can see Louis’ bedroom chair and table through the door in this gif!)

This is so amazing! One of my dreams is to go to New Orleans. I’m in love with that city, and I want so bad to visit that house! But I know it will be hard and difficult for me to go there since I’m far away from United States and I have no money! But I know I’ll be there some day, for now this photo set has made me really happy! Thank you for sharing this with the Fandom! 🌼

Louis & Lestat (2/2) by @chyrsoprases

I commissioned this for @sanguinivora! This is the second version, with the cool vintage photo effect. I love their expressions, and the overall composition, and Louis has canon!hair, which I know at least 2 ppl will appreciate, and anyway, here’s a typical evening in the Rue Royale, with Louis reading smtg to Lestat bc adorbz.

@chyrsoprases is a great artist to work with, highly recommend!
