Television presenter, fashion journalist, and model Louise Roe wanted her baby’s nursery to have the charming feel of England where she grew up. She also wanted it to be elegant and in keeping with the rest of her L.A. home, which was built in the 1930s. The result is a lovely example of how to mix the old with the new in a classic, timeless way. Working with Decorist Design Director Jessica McCarthy, Louise mixed antiques and vintage pieces with new decor from stores including Pottery Barn Kids, Viyet, Bed Bath & Beyond, Loom Decor, Etsy, RH Baby, and Buy Buy Baby. “Mixing vintage and contemporary furniture makes a room feel truly lived-in, and gives it personality and dimension,” McCarthy told Traditional Home.
