|Sarah Richardson's design and Inspiration Diary|
I do know that I am not the only Sarah Richardson fan out there. Here in the U.S., though, there is a shocking lack of Richardson on T.V. I would beg HGTV Canada, if I thought it would make any difference, to please air her shows! I watch the episodes I have recorded over and over again. I study her rooms to learn how she is able to create such charming and timeless spaces for her clients. She loves light and bright, but she experiments with color too. I think her husband, Alexander Younger helps push her in the direction of bold colors because that is his personal preference. She is, however, always true to her own aesthetic.
I follow her design diary to see what inspires her at the moment and it is fun to see how many things I have already found on my own! I don't know if that means that I lack my own unique design style or if it is affirmation of my taste. All I know is that I love almost everything she does and I understand her passion for all that design is and what it means to how we live our lives. I want to meet her someday...someday soon!

|I found this fabric on my own, and Lori loved it too . We decided we had to get it for her bedroom project, so when I was searching for it, guess who else I found loves this fabric? Yup, see it here|
I know you will gain inspiration from Sarah's diary as well as satiate that little voyeuristic impulse.
