BEVERLY HILLS TUDOR HOME REVIVED!

Front exterior of a Beverly Hills Tudor style home by Betsy Burnham

A Beverly Hills Tudor style home made bright and cheerful by Los Angeles based interior designer Betsy Burnham.

Tudor homes sometimes have a darker more heavy feel to the decor - full of tradition and wood paneling I think.   Not this home.  With walls painted a bright white and an eclectic introduction of textiles, upholstery and wallpaper in muted tones of grays, blues, corals and lavenders, this home feels nothing like your run of the mill tudor!

Living room in Tudor style home with gray sofas with purple accent pillows, statuette lamps and a piano
The gray upholstered furniture in the living room gets a bit of color with wonderful purple cushions.  Also love the statuette lamps on the console. (above)

Coffee table with books and flowers
Nothing like a neatly arrnage coffee table with books, amethyst Calla Lilies and just the right reading. (above)

T.V. Room with Palm Beach style fabric upholstered sofas and a large leather ottoman.
The t.v. room features a large built in cabinet with beadboard door fronts, coral sofas upholstered in a Chinoiserie Palm Beach like fabric and a square tufted leather ottoman. (above)

White kitchen with marble counters, glass upper cabinets and glass pendant lights with black stools in a Beverly Hills home
Nothing like a bright white kitchen with marble counters, glass upper cabinets and fantastic round glass pendant lights over the kitchen island. (above)

Love the master bedroom wallpaper - Katie Ridder's Leaf wallpaper pattern available at Harbinger in Los Angeles. Stunning! (above)

What I like about this house is that it seems comfortable, livable and well designed.  Not too over the top in the decor but just enough to show a bit of personality and style.  Like.  Like a lot.

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. Picked up my dog Mr. Boo yesterday (see previous post) from the surgery hospital and took him over to the vet who will nurse him back to health over the next two weeks.  He looked so sad and tired after his surgery! Poor guy.

P.P.S.  Headed to the theater tonight to see a play.  So excited.

P.P.P.S.  Must also make it up to my little cottage in the Hollywood Hills today to see how construction is progressing and to talk about the floors.  My mom and my sis DS are worried that I am not moving things along quick enough...so today...we're going to get the project moving!!!

P.P.P.P.S.  Have a great day!

P.P.P.P.P.S.  Thank you to fab designer Joe Lucas owner of Harbinger showroom for the tip on the master bedroom wallpaper source.

  4. OOOhhhh - I TOTALLY love this house. It is so warm and inviting and not over the top. I am not an over the top kind of girl, but I love nice things and I like everything to be nice and cozy - a place where family and friends can hang out. This looks like just the place. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I agree that Tudor usually equals dark and heavy. From the outside to the inside, this home is anything but. Thanks for sharing!
