Get the Look! Sarah Richardson Off the Grid House {Foyer & Landing}

We have been admiring the classic decor within Sarah Richardson’s off-the-grid family home project. and the modern country yet eclectic foyer and landing with herringbone flooring, vintage style doors, and vertical shiplap (or wide wainscot…I am not sure what the precise term is for this trim treatment), and mix of old and new within Sarah’s Ontario country home boasts bold bursts of periwinkle blue color, unusual pairings, and an unexpected mix of matte and shiny finishes. It has a vintage Euro-country vibe that greets guests at the front door.

Foyers are often decorated formally or not at all, and here in Sarah Richardson’s own off the grid home (which reflects elements of classic, cottage, farmhouse, and modern style), the foyer and landing greet guests with a casual cheerful mood. The architectural details and design choices help these spaces feel aged and interesting, defying the fact they are newly constructed. I am surprised to see so many cool tones in the foyer since Sarah often likes to accent  boldly with red (her husband’s favorite color) or burnt oranges. The landing is only slightly warmer with the addition of curtain panels with a sand and navy print. Perhaps this move to go uber neutral in the foyer is about the ability to add seasonal accents. The flooring is not my favorite, and I’m anxious to hear what you all think.

Did you notice the duet of scroll console tables which seem to function beautifully for dropping keys or mail?

    Love the blue interior doors. Blue is the new black.

      I love them too and I especially love the idea for hollow, builder’s special doors that are so boring and flat. People are so afraid of painting their doors! 🙂

    While I normally love Sarah’s sense of style, I’m with you on the floor choice. I think a pretty wood would have been much nicer. Also, I like the wall color, but not as a backdrop for the tall architectural mirror. I love the mirror but not so much against the silver color….I almost feel guilty being critical of anything Sarah does! Otherwise, it’s lovely!

      I hear you, Rhonda! I hate to say anything negative since I don’t know the details behind the decisions, and since its her personal home, I’m sure there’s a story we simply don’t know. The other thing I have learned is that sometimes the photography editing does not always reflect true colors so who knows!?!
