As a huge Sarah Richardson fan,
I see genius everywhere in her designs.
(See the whole collection of lovely posts right here.)
1. Creative Kitchens
Think beyond galley and monstrous islands.
(The kitchen above is actually a split design
and so seamless in this great room/dining space.)
2. Marshmallow clouds.
Spaces can be deliciously white
without being hands-off.
3. Petite Peninsulas.
Teeny-chic and functional.
4. Penny tiles from heaven.
Make a wall look like a million bucks.
5. Bedroom office.
Make it pretty!
6. A Soft Landing.
Paint your entry a color that makes you smile.
7. Rustic Cabinet & Marble.
So much more interesting to see this
re-purposed piece placed on this mosaic
rather than distressed hardwood.
8. Coffee Bedside Table.
A petite bench or table does double duty.
9. Supersized Coffee.
A roomy surface here holds plates
of appetizers or kids’ homework.
10. Lantern magic.
They just scream farmhouse charm.
11. Sophisticated storage.
Just think of the space for products and linens!
On the sea or not, it will not fail you.
13. Symmetry in small spaces.
Cottage charm doesn’t have to spell
random and mismatched.
14. Unexpected color.
Forego the predictable fancy chrome stool.
15. Numerical bath towel monograms.
Smart AND sweet.
16. Tone down the orange.
Knotty pine can be cringe-worthy…
ashy paint or stain to the rescue.
17. The Fishy Bureau.
A simple stencil, perhaps?
18. Midcentury goes cottage.
Proves the era doesn’t necessarily get the last word.
19. Hardworking narrow ledge.
Who can’t use more vanity space?
20. Warm Greys.
Heightens the cocoon-factor.
21. Shelf in the Ozone.
Bonus when the ceiling is pretty!
22. Buffet in Bath.
Less expensive than cookie cutter built-ins.
23. When you can’t choose a color.
Try combining a bunch.
24. Two doors are cuter than one.
Especially when painted raspberry.
Still with me?
Bless you, darling.
25. Low-cost bunks.
Behold what a beautiful paint treatment can do.
Don’t want the SR goodness to end?
Peace to you, right where you are.
