My absolute favorite television designer, Sarah Richardson, announced her new website today. I could spend hours looking at her designs, checking out her finds, viewing her collection and reading her new online magazine! And, if you’re a fan of Tommy, her TV design sidekick, there is plenty of him too. The website has images from many of the makeovers from Sarah 101, Sarah’s House, and Design, Inc. This kitchen is from season 1 of Sarah 101. It’s got a great cottage feel.
If you follow Sarah Richardson, you’ve probably noticed she has a streamlined, transitional style. She tends to gravitate towards light fabric, often having an elegant and traditional feel. This image is also from season 1 of Sarah 101 and it’s from an episode called, Contemporary Living. This is one of the more modern designs I’ve seen from her. Another sweet, cottage kitchen. This one is extra special because it’s from her summer home, and a series where she remodels her cottage, which is located on an off-the-grid island. Watching this series was fun because we got to peek into her personal cottage, meet her husband and watch the contractors struggle with bringing all the supplies in via boat!
This gorgeous bathroom is from season 2 of Design, Inc. This series gave us an understanding of what it’s like to run a design firm. And, a chance to overdose on Tommy! I love the marble floor throughout, and the mosaic tile detail on the large shower.This room is also from Design, Inc., which ran for four seasons. This room is classic Sarah Richardson to me. I am amazed that she has small children, and designs rooms like this. I’d be curious if she has any rooms like this in her own house. I love, love, love it. But, with a dog and two kids, I would never live comfortably in a room like this.
Sarah isn’t afraid to make bold choices, like this ornate wall paper on the ceiling of this contemporary nursery. I think it’d be overstimulating for a baby. But, the parents would probably feel sophisticated when spending time in this blue and orange boy’s room. Definitely a room that will grow with a child!
Another good example of what I like about Sarah Richardson. Simple, pretty, and functional designs are commonplace in her makeovers. Details like the wood ceiling and the beadboard planks, make this space feel finished and design-rich.
Her redesigned website also includes Get Inspired, a new online magazine with tips and finds. This scrapwood wallpaper looks amazingly real and is much easier than sourcing and compiling scrap wood! It’s $270 a roll, and she includes links to buy.
And, there are even affordable finds. This charming floral plate is from Anthropologie and is just $14 a plate. Sarah suggests buying a few and box framing them for display art.
