Behind the 2014 Coastal Living Showhouse

Betsy Burnham & Max Humphrey are design partners of the well known interior design firm Burnham Design. Known for flawlessly combining the classic with the unexpected, this design duo was the stroke of genius behind this year’s Coastal Living showhouse, located in picturesque Coronado Beach, CA. In regards to the showhouse, their design decisions came naturally. They decided that their goal for the house was to be “effortlessly chic.” We think that they achieved the ultimate level of success in being “effortlessly chic”, and know that you’ll agree! See below for some “behind-the-scenes” snapshots from their design process for the showhouse, and stay tuned for the 2014 Coastal Living Showhouse issue, set to release on September 19th!

About Max

Max Humphrey, partner and designer at Burnham Design, earned his title through hard work and a unique design aesthetic. In 2013 his loft was featured in Lonny magazine, and he was named one of the national “young guns” of interior design. Max lives out his aesthetic in his own home: a historic loft in the downtown Los Angeles arts district, accented with vintage Gucci Barware, Hermes ashtrays, and a guitar collection amassed from years of touring.

“Our goal is for the house to be effortlessly chic. Think old school Hamptons filtered through the California sun. We want the house to be like a great outfit that carries from daytime to dinner and after; one that works when kids and dogs and sand are underfoot but also sets the stage for everything from beach barbecues to elegant cocktail parties.”
