Decor Inspiration: Peaceful Pink Girl’s Bedroom

I love Sarah Richarson’s classic approach to decorating a girl’s room, and in this one she uses pink but not in an overly sweet or granny way. It’s sophisticated and peaceful.

Sarah Richardson has been a key fixture of the Canadian design world since starting out in 1995, working behind the scenes as a prop stylist and set decorator. By the late 90’s, Sarah realized that she could carve a niche in the emerging world of design TV by sharing her practical, endearing and inspiring approach to décor and design with viewers. Sarah launched her first TV series for HGTV in 2000, Room Service. 17 years later, Sarah is the host, co-creator and co-producer of over 250 episodes of design television that span seven hit HGTV series targeted directly to the needs of a contemporary audience. Room Service, Design Inc., Sarah’s House, Sarah’s Cottage, Sarah’s Rental Cottage, Sarah 101, and Real Potential are a collection of lifestyle television series dedicated to tackling the demands and design challenges of modern living.

Known for her upbeat and easygoing approach to creating elegant and timeless designs for every room in the home, Sarah inspires and empowers viewers by effortlessly sharing her winning style formula. Sarah’s enthusiasm for all aspects of design is infectious, and her ability to engage and inspire viewers has earned her a loyal and dedicated fan base across North America and around the world. Sarah’s programs are seen in over 100 countries worldwide.

I love Sarah Richardson’s humble approach
to mixing old and new pieces, and this
girl’s room is a sweet example of how
pink paint does not have to steal the show.

    I think my favorite thing is how she makes colors we usual think of as bright – bold pink, sunny yellow, brilliant blue, somehow seem soft and subtle, just right for a bedroom, and the perfect balance between cheerful and quiet.

    What a delight to hear from you. Thanks so much for reaching out and working with you would be such a treat. Looking forward to being creative together.

    Have a beautiful weekend! XOXO
