Boutique hotel, The Eliza Jane, just opened in New Orleans with Octavia Art on the walls!

The hotel resembles the city in that it is a classic mix of elegance and funkiness. It is built within nine historic warehouses that look distinct on the outside but have been united on the inside. Inspired by the buildings' rich history, the hotel's design team drew inspiration from many of the buildings' original occupants: The Daily Picayune, the Gulf Baking Soda company, as well as the Peters Cartridge shop and Peychaud Bitters factory.

The hotel is named after Eliza Jane Nicholson, publisher of The Daily Picayune in the late 1800s and the first woman publisher of a major metropolitan newspaper in the United States. The hotel's design creatively showcases this rich history, giving guests and locals alike a glimpse into centuries-old stories and a feel of old New Orleans charm.

We worked with the hotel’s interior team to create the perfect New Orleans getaway, choosing artwork from artists across the U.S. that accentuate the interiors with the classic funkiness that New Orleans does so well.
