"I'm really impressed with [Elizabeth's] "inspiration room" – it's something new…"

"[Elizabeth's room] is so fresh, and it takes risks, and that's what a designer should do – I always say a designer should set the trends and not follow them and that's what's happening here. It's great!"

San Francisco Magazine, November, 2003, p. 112, photo and write-up, for a teenage girl's bedroom:

"Elizabeth Brownrigg designed this sleek, funky bedroom to express a teenage girl's unbridled independence. Brownrigg, an artist and former set designer, painted the whimsical mask that hangs above the large platform bed which is dressed with a brilliantly-colored custom bedspread. The leather shag rug adds texture and a sense of fun. The innovative custom-made window treatment, painted wooden panels covered with sheer fabric that slide over a woven metal curtain, allows for either full light, filtered light, or complete privacy."
