Design 101 with Sarah Richardson

I've been loving Sarah Richardson's new HGTV show called Sarah 101. In each episode she completely transforms a single room from floor to ceiling, and teaches us her interior design tricks along the way. Here's an example of a transformed dark and narrow living room:

 What amazed me the most was how many different patterned fabrics she used... and so many bold ones at that. It made me realize that I really need to step out of my decor comfort zone!
So what do you think... too much colour or do you love it?


  1. You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
    Oh living Aten who creates life.
    When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
    You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
    Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
    You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
    You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
    Men see you, but know not your ways.

    ...thanks...sweet sugar!

  7. That room is gorgeous! I love the colors.

  8. UMMMM. LOVE IT! You know I'm seriously obsessed with Sarah right!? And Tommy - don't you love Tommy too? I love how Sarah uses multiple fabrics and I'm going to try to do the same. Her rooms are never boring and always gorgeous.

  9. I love the color. Really need to punch some color into my home.

  10. The fabrics she uses are so great...these are such pretty rooms.

  11. Although I'm not personally a bright-colors girl, I really like all that color! Makes me want to play in it, which I guess is what a living room is for...

    Getting out of your color comfort zone is hard. You want to match, right?!

  12. I'm not crazy about that much pink, but I LOVE the dining room chairs!

  13. I like her so much. What a great room, cute colors and patterns. Would love a design like this if I was single :)
