From Rocket Science to Interior Design: Baton Rouge Roots and Bold Design from April Vogt

Hailing from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, April graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 2005. From there she decided to continue her quest for knowledge and earned her Masters of Science in Engineering from Southern University in 2007. April worked eight (8) years as an Engineer at Stennis Space Center employed by Lockheed Martin and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne to test rocket engines.

After renovating her home in New Orleans, she realized her true passion was Interior DesignBye, Bye Rocket Science, Hello Interior Design! In 2016, she mapped out a plan and put the wheels in motion, embarking on a new journey as an interior design student. In 2018, April obtained an Associates of Arts degree in Interior Design and is now actively pursuing a career in interior design here in New Orleans.

April believes she has the power to shape human experiences and interactions by creating spaces that resonates
with one’s soul.

We adore this bold green wall paired with the black, white, pink and gold color palette.

The mix of styles in this traditional southern home makes our heart sing. You can never have enough color and enough velvet in a room.

This room is absolutely stunning. The mixture of textures and patterns is cohesive and comfortable at the same time. Truly a unique spin on southern sitting room style.

This gallery wall/TV station is perfectly placed with various styles of art and heirlooms. We love everything about the maximalist style in this room.

This couch is perfectly styled with the right amount of pattern and texture through various pillows. Perfect place to snuggle up and read a good book or drink a cocktail.

This deep purple looks stunning in this living room and adds a bold pop of color to this traditional fireplace and art vignette.

Don’t be afraid to bring the outside in, similar to this sky blue bathroom.

Wallpaper is definitely back in style and we adore this moody floral wallpaper especially anchored by the traditional bed linens and bold red lamps.
