Betsy Burnham in Beverly Hills

House Beautiful has done it again, this time with a gorgeous Beverly Hills home decorated by Betsy Burnham.  Betsy does a fantastic job using pattern and color in a way that is bold but not overwhelming.  It takes restraint and a trained eye to find that perfect balance.  She understandes that every piece in a room cannot be a "wow" piece and that you have to mix some traditional antiques in with the statement pieces to keep a room sophisticated and livable.

Let's take a look!

A large-scale patterned rug paired with solid furniture with clean lines allows the abstract art over the fireplace to really stand out.

Creating two intimate seating areas is a brilliant solution for a large room.

A round table with a pleated skirt is sophisticated and elegant.

It takes a brave person to use Quadrille's Lyford Background on large upholstered pieces, but Betsy does it perfectly by pairing it with solid chairs and a solid leather ottoman.  It looks fantastic with ikat curtains.

I need a Hague Blue butler's pantry.

And this mudroom.

A subtle quatrefoil detail on the pendant lights adds pattern to a white kitchen.

A Moroccan chandelier brings an exotic touch to a powder room.

Marble, chandeliers, oriental rugs, Hollywood Regency cabinet hardware, and a fiddle leaf fig tree make a truly sophisticated bathroom. 

In the master bedroom, a large-scale wallpaper pattern highlights the ceiling detail.  The tole pagoda chandelier looks fabulous in this room, even though the room is not really a typical Palm Beach style room.

Chinese figural lamps are used throughout the house and add a touch of whimsy and elegance, especially when paired with traditional oriental rugs.
