I have been sharing design details of Sarah Richardson’s new off the grid home in Ontario, and today I’m offering an EXCLUSIVE source guide for a few key home decor pieces 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 synch?).
Hello Lovely to the rescue! I have personally checked and double-checked sources to locate either the exact item or a worthy approximation. For example, you’ll find a link to what appears to be the modern Sputnik chandelier Sarah used above her dining room table, but it does appear that she chose to customize it with white globes rather than the clear globes.
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.

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.”
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.
