LOUISA'S CHAMBER: A room of her own had always been a priority for
Louisa. With her often turbulent emotions, her vivid, romantic imagination, and her
constant preoccupation with her family's welfare, she needed a haven in which to escape,
where she could find solitude and where she could write. Louisa's father built her a
half-moon desk between two windows and a bookcase to hold her favorite books. May painted
a panel of Calla lilies beside the desk and an owl on the fireplace.
