Decor Inspiration: Serenely Chic Condo {Sarah Richardson}

Major motivational issues here these frigid days

of the polar schmolar vortex…

who can be expected to sweep floors

and plan meals with the winds howling

like lions, the frozen tundra biting your

shih-tzu’s  wee paws?

For now, let’s warm up via daydreaming…

about a serenely chic condo designed by

Sarah Richardson, k?

J’aime symmetry, I really do.

What do you think about the mirrored breakfast bar?

The group of candlesticks have such a

Scandinavian charm thing goin’ on.

I had hickory floors like these in a prior home…the

variation made them very easy to live with.

I don’t care for the black cooktop, but isn’t

this an elegantly sweet little kitchen?

Stay warm, friends, and if I may suggest:

curl up in a warm duvet with a hot beverage

and more Sarah Richardson here.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Darling kitchen and those floors are gorgeous. I like the kitchen sink faucet and the open cabinets are perfect in this setting. I want the glass coffee table .. and yep, I like that symmetry:) xxL

    I'm not getting much done in the housework field these days either! So cold and windy out there. I haven't stepped foot outside for a week and I spend most of my time in warm fuzzy pj's! I have been creating some fun things that will be up for sale at some upcoming shows!

    I love how Sarah's
    spaces are feminine
    yet would not send a
    man running for the hills!

    I agree with you about
    the stove….and that it is,
    indeed, a sweet kitchen!!

    Stay cozy. I have a busy
    week and must face the
    elements, but I try to do
    it with a smile and pretend
    I am in Siberia!

    I especially like the subtle and elegant backsplash with the counter in the kitchen. (and I do like the mirror on the breakfast bar – and the little storage or access area just to the side. Marvelous use of space
