Recipes for a Classic Living Room & Family Room

We’re revisiting some of the interiors within Sarah Richardson’s off the grid home in Ontario because they are classic spaces which have a timeless quality that won’t soon fall from favor.

You’ll find some of the exact sources for furniture and home decor incorporated in this farmhouse’s living room and family room (media room) and even some paint colors.

Sarah Richardson’s own living room and sun room were designed with classic traditional style, and their approachable elegance is a quality so many of us seek after.

Make sure you watch the video below where Sarah Richardson discusses her living room philosophy (if you can’t touch it or put your feet up, why have it?)!

You’ll glean multiple ideas for adding fresh traditional style to your own living room. From the charming conversation and game areas to the cozy wood stove area in the sun room, these thoughtfully designed spaces seem just right for soaking up winter sunshine.

Sarah went mega as far as scale for the fireplace, and it demands attention with its attractive marble. (And isn’t it refreshing to not spy a big black TV box over the mantel?)

It may surprise you to see the space is so hushed and neutral. Would you have added more lovely pops of color? It may be that Sarah is simply showing us a neutral backdrop which can then change with the seasons and additional colorful accessories.

Sarah Richardson’s family home, an off-the-grid house in Ontario has so many pretty design details to note, and in the rustically chic family room/media room, we see Sarah’s favorite blue and white scheme.

Wood beams add warmth and interest to the space while also delineating different areas. There aren’t many media rooms spotlighted on this blog for good reason…they tend to be one-note, packed with leather recliners, and completely absent of natural light. So I say, hello, lovely, to this one which takes a more multipurpose approach and includes sumptuous fabrics.

    I really miss watching Sarah on HGTV. It was informative and entertaining. Her homes and those she decorated for clients were beautifully decorated but livable.
    Her current living room is perfect! I believe, too, that your living room should be used, not a showroom. That it can look nice but still be comfortable. I also love neutrals. They are restful. I found when doing my Livingroom that it is not easy decorating in neutrals. You have to use texture to get an interesting composition. I’m in love with the found artifact over her fireplace. It’s truly a statement piece.

      I miss her shows too, and I only get little video clips on youtube since she is associated with hgtv canada now. Yes – and the fireplace itself! 🙂
