Now, I'll start off again by saying, I love Sarah Richardson. Her style, aesthetic, eye, and wonderful on-air personality have her riding well above any other television designer on my list. If she ever did work in the states, you could bet your bottom dollar I'd scrape and pinch til' I could hire her to do my kitchen, but I digress. Onto the meat of this post, shall we?
The master bedroom. Let me first start by saying how genius it was to railroad that exterior grade rough hewn siding all around the room as wainscot. Remember when she used this to do the ceiling of the carport in Season 2? Anyway, the minute she decided to use that in the room, I fell even more in love with the addition. Top that off with the four poster bed, and delicious colors and I was ready to move in. Anyone got $1.6 million you could loan me?
Now, because I know you watch the show - you aren't going to be surprised when I say that Sarah is the QUEEN of re upholstery. Oh, to have her source. But if you're looking for large floral or botanical graphic chairs like these on a budget that's not so custom-upholstery, check out these chairs from target:
Still with a great punchy pattern, and open leg, these chairs are more than $1,000 less than the version Sarah used once upholstered, and add similar graphic interest and texture to the room. Available in a myriad of fabrics, these armless slipper chairs can be found here.
If you must have an arm, why not try the slope or swoop arm chairs available for the same price at Target here and at Urban Outfitters here. Gorgeous, right? What's better - you can find so many fabrics to coordinate with these for pillows (like Sarah's) to add even more of an individual and high style look on much much less. One place I love lurking for custom made pillows from high-end designer fabric without the designer price tag is Elegant Touch on Etsy or at her website: http://www.elegantouch.net/. You can't beat the pricing or the quality.
