One of our favorite things at The Glam Pad is discovering new-to-us designers who fill us with inspiration and joy. We first “met” Jessica Kain Barton of J. Kathryn Interiors when her scrumptious lower lounge for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles’ 2023 Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardens was unveiled. A celebration of traditional style, with a generous dose of Grandmillennial flaire, Jessica looked to design legends such as Mario Buatta, Bunny Mellon, and Deeda Blair for inspiration. We were head over heels!
Having grown up in Kentucky, Jessica adores exquisitely layered interiors that are rooted in tradition, infused with playful whimsey, and designed for entertaining. She also has a keen eye for detail, which can be seen throughout every inch of this space from the sumptuous trims and passementerie to the skillfully hand-painted ceiling. Let’s take a look inside with photography by Robert Peterson of Rustic White Interiors and styling by Frances Bailey.
