Swooning Over ... Sarah's House & Sarah Richardson Design

If you are not watching Sarah's House on HGTV or reading Sarah Richardson's blog, it is high-time you started!  Sarah Richardson is the amazingly talented, Canadian designer who buys a home in need of some work and makes it her own with the help of Tommy, her assistant and Vito, her contractor.

I love the personalities on the show, but most of all, I absolutely love the designs.  Sarah and Tommy come up with the most beautiful - and livable - spaces.  And the best part: they do so on a budget.  Sarah shops at IKEA and in flea markets and takes the viewers along for the ride.  She also shows her budget and how much she went over/under.   For anyone attempting renovations or redecorating projects, big or small, the show is a source of endless inspiration and encouragement.

There have been a few seasons of Sarah's House now, but my absolute favorite is the 2008 season where she renovated the 1970s back-split.  I just love what she did with the split-level layout.  A close second is her most recent season with her farmhouse.  Below are some of my favorite rooms that Sarah designed on her show.

Got any favorite spaces above?  I love that pink living room. Oh, and the yellow bathroom. And the gray master bedroom.  See? It's impossible to pick just one!

See you swoon,
