I am so luck that Cassity over at Remodelaholic is featuring my dining room today on her busy interesting blog. Pop on over to see her continually updated blog and amazing homes.
Last week I posted some pictures of Sarah Richardson's kitchen that was featured on her show "Sarah's Cottage". This show featured her Reno of her own island retreat. It appears that a lot of people outside of Canada have not seen this show, so I thought I would treat you to a few more photos of this gorgeous place.
It wouldn't be Sarah's House if it didn't have a fabulous mix of fabrics. In every room she does, the pillows are just so great...love the mix of denim, icat, floral and stripes.
I find it very restful. The view takes center stage here, not the furniture. It all blends seamlessly into the surroundings.
If I remember correctly, she added some white paint to the finish on the tongue and groove panelling to avoid that yellow pine look that pine gets with age.
An old office chair gets new life and a lovely vignette above the old dresser.
The seating area in the kitchen. Can you picture having coffee here in the morning with friends.
What I really like here, is that the colors are mixed up. It would have been typical to repeat the clue palette from the living room. This is more eclectic and unexpected
With only water access, all of the materials and furnishings had to arrive by barge..
