1.

Antique corbels

create balance when adding lots

of modern enhancements to a farmhouse kitchen.

Here are some affordable pretty corbels in Rubberwood to paint.

2.

Shades of grey

work magic with stainless appliances.

3.

Comfy high quality barstools

upholstered in a fresh print (oilcloth!) add more luxury and comfort-value than rustic old antique stools or metal French ones we might expect to see.

This one might create a similar farmhouse moment.

Farmhouse architecture means

you don’t have to take yourself too seriously.

Here is a great lantern pendant which would

work in almost any farmhouse-y space.

How inviting is this farmy foyer?

Rosy doors and hardware are pure genius.

5.

Expensive or boring

stairway runners

have no place here.

Quilt

6.

Paisley,

dots, a herringbone-ish quilt, and

a rooster on a clock  juxtapose beautifully

(it’s illegal in some states to use ‘juxtapose’ like I just did).

7.

Not every piece of

wood furniture

in a farmhouse must be painted!

(A white painted 4-poster would maybe have been ‘the expected’ here.)

8.

Burnt orange, apricot, and garnet 

punch up neutrals

without overwhelming.

(Honestly I have no idea how SR accomplishes this…

that’s why it’s design voodoo…

also, am I the only one who sees Jesus

in the wood grain of the clock? 

VERY farmhouse rock and roll, Sarah.).

9. 

Seriously. No words.

Unicorns, a crown, a crest…

the piece deserves to have a home designed around it.

‘Farmhouse’ can be

romantic

and feminine.

Sometimes the bones of a farmhouse are worth honoring.

Here, SR went renegade with her kitchen design…

and built a

lower counter/cabinet

so the window could live on…

flippin SMART and inspiring.

Oodles and oodles of beautiful showing-its-age 

maple hardwood flooring.

Restful spaces

in a farmhouse can feel clean,

not cold, 

nostalgic yet modern.

    I love Sarah Richardson's style… when I win the lottery, I'm going to hire her and Tommy to do my whole new mansion! 😉 Okay.. a girl can dream can't she…?

    Beautiful!

    The woodgrain on the clock looks like Abraham Lincoln to me, lol.

    I love Sarah. The farmhouse series was my favorite, but the new cottage is to die for too!

    I'd really love to have you post this on my linky party!!! The party is open for a few more days.

    My all-time favorite decorating show! I wish HGTV would air a little more "Sarah" and a LOT less House Hunters. :@

    Good morning Michele,
    As always love scrolling through the fab photos on your blog and this time is no different. LOVE Sarah. I wanted to thank you because I am currently working on designing a kitchen for a client and the range placement has become an issue. The photo with the range in the corner or "dead space" is where the client is wanting it but having a hard time deciding if it will work. I emailed her this photo this morning so that she could have a visual. So glad to have your blog to constantly refer to. Have a happy day!!
    xo, Mariaelena

    Good morning Michele,
    I was so happy to visit your blog today. I am currently working on a kitchen redesign for a client and we are deciding on range placement. The photo of Sarah's range in the corner or dead space is where the client is thinking. I wasn't so sure, but now we have this lovely visual. I emailed the photo to her to help her decide. As always, I love scrolling through your blog for constant inspiration!..Thanks and have a happy day, Mariaelena
