Since opening her eponymous art gallery a year ago, Martine Chaisson has built a successful business from beautiful, thought-provoking and unusual art. She also brought her discerning eye to bear on the elegant apartment above the gallery, where she resides. Working with Atlanta-based designers John Fernandez and Jennifer True of Fernandez and True Interiors, Chaisson made sure her home, like her gallery, was a place where she loved every piece she included.  
  "I think it's part of being a gallery owner," she says. "I have to have things a certain way or I just won't have them at all. I knew what I wanted. If something wasn't the right look, I'd hold out and wait until the right thing came along."
  Having worked with Fernandez and True on her previous condo, a youthful, modern loft, Chaisson did not hesitate to use their expertise again.
  The look of Chaisson's living quarters was inspired by the architecture of the 19th-century building, which her family purchased after Hurricane Katrina and is still in the process of renovating. Once the home of the Old Bible House (a center for Bible study), and later a stripped-down sheet metal shop, the faded jewel featured 25-foot ceilings, tall windows overlooking St. Patrick's Church and a 1,300-square-foot ballroom. Its once-grand framework called out for elaborate crown moldings, plaster medallions and crystal chandeliers.
  The glamorous, feminine design was also inspired by Chaisson herself. An avid follower of design blogs, she gravitates toward a variety of styles. Her mantra: If you love a piece, you will find a place for it. "My apartment is very Parisian, but at the same time I see Hollywood Regency, '70s modern and art deco," Chaisson says.
  "It's so great to be able to come upstairs and detach from work," Chaisson says. Though she characterizes her personal style as "extremely girly," she points out that much of her decor is streamlined and masculine. Feminine flourishes are usually found in the details: the texture of a fabric, the pattern of a wallpaper or the sparkle of a vanity sconce dripping with crystals. Her taste in clothing follows a similar vein. Dresses are a staple, but on workdays, she forgoes her frilly frocks in favor of tailored pieces (often with a '60s Mad Men flavor), accenting them with flat sandals or 4 inch heels. "At 5' 2", I feel awkward in anything in between," Chaisson says. For casual pursuits like walking Baxter, the chow/hound mix she shares with fiance Juan Linares, Chaisson typically pairs skinny jeans and T-shirts with Converse Chuck Taylors or her favorite Hunter Wellies.
  With two wedding ceremonies in the works - a February wedding in New Orleans and an April wedding in Guatemala - Chaisson rarely has free time, but when she does, she shops online (Gilt Groupe and ASOS are two of her favorite websites) and peruses wedding blogs. Now that she's celebrating her gallery's one-year anniversary and her home is nearly complete, Chaisson is happy to watch her dreams come to life. "There was no way this apartment wasn't going to be a reflection of my personal style," she says.
