Loves It!

Sunday, September 14, 2008 | Category: Bed and Bath, Decorating, Design Inspiration, Designers

Well after a split-second decision to head to my parent’s house in Fort Worth to avoid Hurricane Ike, I am safe and sound (and we think our place is okay too).  I picked up a couple of magazines today and am loving the August/September Western Interiors.  This bedroom by a Material Girls favorite, Betsy Burnham, is just perfection!  The 1950’s folding screen is amazing and I love the color scheme!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  Be thankful for the “little” things like electricity… our Houston friends are sweatin’ something fierce right about now!

Love the soothing palette, especially for a bedroom. Glad your safe and sound!

I love the screen. I also love the coverlet! This is the kind of room requiring a bedjacket and a white breakfast in bed tray! Where is Jeeves, and my coffee?! So pleased all is well!

The palette is so soothing!

I know right, where is Jeeves when I need him?!

Where in Ft. Worth do your parents live? Mine are in the TCCU area (but I live in Savannah).

Glad the Material Girls are okay! Thanks for letting us know.
You’re right, this issue of WI is really nice – and you picked a pretty image to share.

I love your blog posts! I would love to see a blog post about kitchen tables!

K Miller – My parents are in the Southwest part of town, but I went to high school right by TCU.

VV- It’s actually the first WI I have actually purchased, and I loved it (esp. because they had a great kitchen and bath section).

Meagan – Glad you like our blog! Kitchen tables, that’s a great idea!

Hi material girls…thought this was a lovely post. The colours are so delicate which is perfect for a bedroom setting – it’s very refreshing. All the best!

I am looking for an interior designer to help with a family home that I am building in the NYC area. It is a French-inspired home (circa 10,000 sq. ft.). Anyone interested in the project, please contact me at
Thank you,
