Get the Look! Sarah Richardson Off the Grid Kitchen & Dining Room

I have been sharing design details of Sarah Richardson’s new off the grid home in Ontario, and today I have resources for a few key home decor pieces, furniture, and paint colors Sarah incorporated in her family’s kitchen and dining room.

Even though you’ll perhaps be able to find resource guides for Sarah Richardson’s new home floating around the internet, in most cases, I have found the links and item names inaccurate and not up to date (perhaps the Canadian Wayfair and American Wayfair are out of sync?).

I have taken the time to locate either the exact item or a worthy approximation.

Sarah’s kitchen has a modern Swedish vibe with retro charm (not just the decor…check out those windows!). The kitchen and dining spaces contain a plethora of fresh ideas; from the custom brass panels to the wood stove paired with modern tile to the pretty and classic banquette. I was thrilled to see she simply skipped dressing the windows since it gives me permission to follow suit! (I’m always looking for loopholes to go more spare.) It’s a very Scandinavian move, and I’m sure many of you traditionalists would prefer to see pretty shades or panels with beautiful textiles introduced to soften the whole scheme. Maybe Sarah plans to add them later. The cozy little wood stove area does seem perfect for intimate hot chocolate conversation and warmth from the wintry Canadian chill. It has a very Nordic cozy feel I love.

I’m crazy about these bar stools from Arteriors!




Are you loving the wood on the ceiling? It adds such a great layer of country style.


Here’s an inverted pendant that isn’t hammered metal like Sarah’s but has a similar feel:


The next two items may not be the exact models, but they are in the same spirit as those in Sarah’s kitchen.


The Kitchen Appliances

Sarah Richardson outfitted her family’s kitchen with beautiful GE Monogram appliances (hand-finished detailing and award-winning quality set them apart), and I love the richness and added warmth the paneling on the refrigerator brings to the mix.


Wondering about the pretty fabrics used in this kitchen? They’re from Kravet and include:

Granby, Wavelink, Breton, Harbord.

To shop even more rooms in Sarah Richardson’s new off the grid home in Ontario, see this story about the laundry room:

What does off the grid mean for the construction of this kitchen? CBC Canada reports,

“Energy Star-approved appliances are critical if you want to go off the grid, or even just help the planet, and your bottom line, by reducing how much electricity you use. Make sure to look for at an appliance’s Energy Star rating before purchasing. Try to buy low-power drawing appliances, that mean avoiding appliances that run all day, or have digital displays that don’t shut off automatically.”

      The sliding door is a vintage carriage house door which may have original paint. The cabinets are painted Benjamin Moore Harbour Haze. Hope this helps! 🙂

    Love the entire relaxed look. Adore the mixed metals! I keep hearing that stainless appliances are on their way out but her choice of range and hood just fits. The stone floor in the food prep area is genius – and it doesn’t break up the “flow” as it’s behind the island. Surprised at how inexpensive those beautiful cane dining chairs are. Would love to know the paint palette if you can pass that along!!

      I thought that the stone floor was all genius with the hardwood. I will work on paint colors for you! Thanks for adding to the beauty here, Laurie. 🙂

      I’m sure this is going to inspire more than a few country homes or farmhouses, Jodi! 🙂

    Any idea what the paint color is on the cabinets?

      I have been wondering too, Elyse. I’ll circle back here if I can find it. 🙂

      Hi Sonja. I have been working on this for quite some time. Haven’t heard back from Sarah’s site yet. If I can’t find it, I will circle back with some close approximations. 🙂

          No luck! But my best guess is a soft misty grey like Benjamin Moore Classic Gray (I used it on bathroom walls in the one we created in our lower level.) 🙂
