Teenage Angst Banished

October 20, 2010 at 6:58 AM 11 comments

I think it’s impossible for Betsy Burnham’s teenage daughter to experience the typical teenage angst in her gorgeous, cheerful room. It’s just way too pretty and cool to be angry. I have been swooning over her room for a while now – it was designed by her very hip mother, designer Betsy Burnham. I thought it was about time, I shared it with all of you. I’ve loved it so much that the walls inspired the green color in a guest room, I’m just finishing up the touches on (pictures of project coming soon).

What a cool room! I love the colors, patterns and eclectic mix of objects around the room – yet, it all feels incredibly cohesive. I wish I could have had that room as a teenager – or now, for that matter! Photos from Decor Demon.

    Poor girl is probably upset at how much cooler her mom is than she is.

    It’s a gorgeous green. Any idea what brand and color?

      It is gorgeous! The paint is “Ivy Enchantment” by Dunn Edwards

    Each time I looked at the photos, I had a new favorite part! I wonder if it has worked to Betsy’s disadvantage though, in that her daughter might want to spend ALL of her time holed up in there. It’s so Debby to love the British chest…her daughter dates a Brit and I wonder if she’s considering one as a gift if they ever get married!!

      Ha – she will probably never leaver her room now. That would be an awesome gift!
