Sarah's Summer House.

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Sarah Richardson.  I know I'm a little behind on blogging about it, but I was thrilled when I heard that Sarah's Summer House was going to be on HGTV.

How amazing is the living room?  It's almost like you are sitting out in the middle of the water with all of those windows overlooking the fantastic views.


I love that she used a bunch of different shades of blue in all different patterns.  I was thinking it may be too busy, but of course, it wasn't.  It all came together so beautifully (as usual for Sarah's rooms).  Those blue Chiang Mai Dragon ottomans are amazing!  I would love to put a little Chiang Mai Dragon fabric somewhere in our house.

I couldn't post about the CMD in Sarah's living room without mentioning this fab powder room makeover over at Hazardous Design where the blue Chiang Mai Dragon wallpaper is a showstopper.  Seriously, this may be one of my favorite powder rooms ever.  Every detail is just perfection (the lighting, the mirror, the floors, the beadboard, the monogrammed towel, the hardware, the pink flower).  Stunning, isn't it? 


And speaking of great bathrooms, the one on Sarah's Summer House was fabulous too.  It has such a clean fresh feeling.

Are you watching the show?  Are you as obsessed with Sarah and Tommy as I am? 

P.S.  Hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  We headed to New Orleans on Friday with a group of friends.  We spent part of Monday recovering and part of it grilling and hanging out by the pool.

  3. Any room with that many windows wins in my book. It could be horribly decorated, and I'd still be in love. Though I guess the fact that everythign else in the hosue is fabulous probably doesn't hurt...:)

  7. Obsessed doesn't really cover how I feel about Sarah and Tommy...if I could be besties with anyone on the planet, it would probably be those two! And I am so much in love with Carrie's powder room...it is completely pitch perfect to me, too! Genius. Hope you had a great weekend my dear!

  8. I don't even know where to begin. Honestly. That first photo is beyond. I LOVE it all. I am also obsessed with them. Whenever my hubby suggests something on the cheaper side, I totally quote Tommy and say something obnoxious like, "Ugh . . .I just can't make it work for less than $5,000." He is priceless.

  9. I love those two! Having said that, this house is not my favorite of her work. Its a bit more cottage-y than I like. Yes, its a cottage, I know. Just not quite my style. But watching Tommy ride in on a septic tank is worth it.

    Every time i watch her show, though, I think that she and her husband must make a gazillion dollars apiece. She is always saying "well, I'm only $40,000 over budget, but you just can't skimp on good design."

  10. Oh Emily! Thank you so much for mentioning all those sweet things about our powder room :)

    As for Sarah and Tommy, I'd give my right arm to have the two of them decorate my house...

  13. I think you are one of the people who got me hooked on Sarah and Tommy! They are so talented and a great pair- fun to watch! And I learn so much from them on every show- that summer house is just Beyond!!!!

  14. I adore Sarah and have been at various antique/flea markets where she and Tommy have been shopping and filming for her shows. They aired these as Sarah's Cottage a couple of summers ago in Canada. This place is about 1/2 hour drive from our place in Muskoka in a really beautiful spot. They are by far my most favourite designers and so likeable!! :)

  17. I love Sarah and Tommy! They make a good pair. I took my friend out to dinner at a restaurant in Yorkville last year and he was sitting at the table next to us! I never said anything to him, but it was exciting nonetheless

  20. I'm also a Sarah Richardson fan, but hadn't seen these images of her house. They're gorgeous -- thanks for sharing!

  21. Really love the feel of the room, especially those huge clear windows. It gives the area that sunroom feel! And just by opening those double doors, you can let in the smell of the sea into the house.
