Baton Rouge Showhouse: Nursery

2 Min Read


“My inspiration came from the stylized fern wallpaper and large-scale floral fabric from Liberty used for the canopy and drapery, and I continued the palette in other pieces and patterns in the room.”


“The canopied daybed is a perfect spot for parents to snuggle with their baby. Later, it can become a reading nook for a little girl. The pink mohair is luxurious but also very forgiving.” A bouclé chair and Chelsea House agate side table will come in handy for early-morning feedings or bedtime lullabies. And as Kara likes to incorporate something old into every space she designs, the B. Viz pillows with exquisite antique embroidery details will no doubt encourage the nursery’s occupant to develop very refined taste.


The lucky little one will have early exposure to the finer things, from Bella Notte linens in her crib to smart outfits from Little English. Kara believes every room—even a nursery—needs original art, so she hung an abstract bayou scene by Ashton Shaw Despot over the crib and arranged a series of small works salon-style on the vestibule’s walls. In the adjoining bath, pale green cabinetry, a Waterworks faucet, and an antique mirror will lure even the most reluctant child to wash up.
