I Like Your stILe: Betsy Burnham

Look through my boards on Pinterest and you’ll spot several of Betsy Burnham’s work.

To this day, her office is still one of my favorites, and even in yesterday’s blog post, that first image came from her.

Her “unapologetic mix, that layers pattern, texture and periods” has made me a fan for years.

When her latest project was featured in this month’s House Beautiful, I was super excited to be treated with such eye candy.

Heeeere it is.

Welcome home.

I’d call this serious curb appeal.


This image was grabbed from her website. Photo styling is a bit different in the magazine.

Lantern was meant to echo the original 1930s banister on staircase.

California cool in a 1930s Beverly Hills Tudor.

Sophisticated without being stuffy.

Um, hellow pink chinoiserie toile sofas, will you be my friend?

She mixed them with a faux-rattlesnake vinyl ottoman and corduroy chairs.

A zen feeling master bath.

My favorite space in the house is this teenager’s bedroom. Yeah, teenager. I mean, ground me all you want if this is what my room as a teenager looks like.

The detailing on the bottom of that nightstand is beautiful.

I love all of this so much.

Great color combining.

I leave you with a quote I cut out from the interview.

Though guilty of a red wall (years ago), I couldn’t agree more with her. And 110% agree about adding a little black.

Betsy Burnham, let’s hang out.

Happy Thursday!

    I have a full-on girl crush going on here…those chinoiserie sofas (in PINK no less!) are giving me a bad case of the gimmies…especially with those suzani pillows. MINE. NOW. um…thanks??? But seriously genius in every way…especially that teenager room, I’m with you, I will be grounded for the rest of my life (c:

  6. Betsy is a bad bad bitch. I love her style, my fav is the living room with the asian looking dude lamps and foo dogs. That quote is unbelievably inspiring. Love!

    Agreed on the black of course! And you know me, I need a little shine (brass, mirrored, etc.).
