Sarah Richardson's own cottage. My favourite thing is her use of three different types of seating. The bench, the armchairs and the painted vintage office chairs.

I don't know about you, but I've been missing Sarah Richardson lately. I love her show Design Inc., and especially enjoy her "Sarah's House" Sarah's Cottage" and "Sarah's Farmhouse" series where she fearlessly guts a house and gives it a complete redo. All of her shows are in re-runs right now, and I am missing them.
Earlier this year, I did a series of posts on her Farmhouse project, a property she was intending for resale. You can see my post on the bedrooms HERE plus other rooms in my blog archives. I was pleasantly surprised to read in this month's Canadian House and Home magazine, that she ended up keeping this house as a weekend retreat. There are some great pictures of the Farmhouse all done up for Christmas and her lovely little girls, as well as an interview with her co-star Tommy Smythe.
I was wondering about her new series Sarah 101, and discovered that it is scheduled to run in January 2011. I must say, I am looking forward to it. And especially because, Sarah actually bought a vintage armchair from the SHOP, and I believe it will be used on one of the new episodes. I can't wait to see what she did with it. I won't show you which chair yet, but I am hoping it does get featured of course.
By far one of my favourite projects of hers is her Northern Ontario cottage situated on an island.
I love the color scheme and the mix of furnishings and materials. All very clever and perfectly suited to the property. Penny tiles are my favourite. Combined with the open shelves and the charming cupboards, this could be my dream room.
The beauty of reclaimed wood.
Notice how beautifully the support pillars are incorporated into this island.
If I remember correctly, this cottage is Off the Grid.
Please note that I am merely a fan of Sarah's designs. I do not work for her or know her. Every time I feature some of her work, I get emails from people wanting to know the name of the fabric on her chair or where she had the fabric paper backed or the color of the kitchen paint. I DON'T KNOW.
I do know that her website has loads of info www.sarahrichardsondesign.com and also www.hgtv.ca provides a list of sources, paints etc for all episodes. All of these photos come from
