Interior Design Inspiration: Betsy Burnham

The Hancock Park (L.A. area) office

of designer Betsy Burnham is a lesson in

chic with a wink and a smile.

Betsy has a passion for yummy menswear fabric,

and her style is such a happy mix!


I have babbled previously

about Burnham’s teen daughter’s dreamy bedroom.

Come to mama, Cali bedroom…

Sensing the freedom in this designer’s

mix of thrift and couture?

Do you allow your own self such freedom

when feathering the nest?

Peace to you right where you are.

    Love her personal style and that it transcends into her design work~

    I think I do allow myself some freedom but to get to this, I'd take a while. She is beautiful and so is her personal style. It's just this morning that I wrote that my home is confused in which genre does it belong to!

    I love her choice of upholstery. Fabulous.

    That bedroom belongs to a teen aged girl? I think I'm jealous and coveting it, so beautiful!

    Hi my friend,

    When I see this I feel that I don't know anything about how to create wonderful rooms…. Very, very nice. Chic with a wink and a smile, indeed!

    I won't make many blog stops today – but a visit here is a must. Thank you for your friendship, your good sense of humor and your endless inspiration, Michelle. I hope 2012 will be the year when I actually meet you in person!

    it's that effortless feel to the style that i think appeals most, and if you have not yet checked out betsy's teen bedroom, you MUST! it's perfection.

    Hey gorgeous lady!! Still catching up on blogs so apologies for the late comment but I LOVE this lady's style! The way she uses black to ground everything against all that pattern and glorious colour… it's timeless and soooo chic!

    Love it!! xxx
