When Bernadette Schaeffler moved to the United States from Cologne, Germany, one of the first things she had to adjust was her sense of proportion. “We don’t have family rooms in Europe,” she confides. “Dimensions are much different.” Fast forward 20 years, and this striking blonde now brings her continental sensibility — albeit modified for Texas-size spaces — to the Design District via her new 4,000-square-foot showroom, aptly named Bernadette Schaeffler Collection. Expect plenty of color, antiques sourced from throughout the world and artfully aged metal furniture, along with a Parisian-inspired flower shop where Schaeffler herself designs arrangements. (You’ll recognize her by the trademark red lipstick.) 1616 Hi Line Dr., Suite 100, 214.749.0816; bernadetteschaeffler.com.
