A dining room that does double duty

A dining room that does double duty

By Sarah Richardson

Formal city dining rooms are often neglected and under-utilized spaces that only get opened up and dusted off a few times a year for "special occasions." Instead of trying to create a casual eat-in kitchen directly adjacent to a more formal dining room, I opted to avoid duplication and have only one... Read More »

Ten magic touches that made my home sparkle

Ten magic touches that made my home sparkle

By Sarah Richardson

That's it! The farm is done. Tommy and I have concluded our northland adventure, and are, once again, fully engrossed in our city life. We tackled the farm project and turned it around in a whirlwind five months (Do not try this at home - it's an insane schedule!). Now that the dust has settled, the... Read More »

Cozy beds for sleepy heads

Cozy beds for sleepy heads

By Sarah Richardson

Nothing inspires a good night's sleep like the peace and quiet of a country setting. Far away from all-night sirens and the hum of the city, country slumbers are inspired by fresh breezes and chirping crickets. When we're guided into a deep sleep by these soothing elements, isn't it fitting that the... Read More »

Where you are master of all you survey

Where you are master of all you survey

By Sarah Richardson

We are nearing the end of the inside tour. Over 10 weeks, I've led you room by room through the 100-year-old original farmhouse, into the new addition and all the way down the hall. Today's journey brings us to the master bedroom (I'd love to show you more, but if you keep on going, you'll end up in... Read More »

Sometimes, sharing is better than splitting

Sometimes, sharing is better than splitting

By Sarah Richardson

Some places are meant to be shared. Admittedly, the bathroom is not the first room you'd think of when conjuring up thoughts of family sharing and co-habitating (am I making you feel claustrophobic as you imagine lineups down the hall and teenagers screaming?). Well, in Utopia, I'm sure everyone has... Read More »

The long view on children's rooms makes for happy kids and parents

The long view on children's rooms makes for happy kids and parents

By Sarah Richardson

What could be more upbeat and fun than decorating a kid's room (or two)? This is your chance to lighten up, take a step back in time, and imagine what would excite the young mind of a child! Sure, you can always default to superheroes and trains, princesses and fairies, but that just guarantees... Read More »

A bathroom soaked in country charm

A bathroom soaked in country charm

By Sarah Richardson

City bathrooms often embody an aesthetic dominated by streamlined simplicity, spa-inspired Zen-style palettes, and an overtly modern approach. I know lots about this as I've renovated my fair share of bathrooms over my career. I'm always in favour of tailoring the look of the renovation to the... Read More »

Authentic details make a country kitchen

Authentic details make a country kitchen

By Sarah Richardson

My challenge started with three small rooms (a dining area, a kitchen and a powder room/hall to the basement), not much country charm and a dream of creating the ultimate country kitchen. I can sketch a room on paper or mock it up in CAD drawings, but the layout is never really finished in my mind... Read More »
