{sarah 101: contemporary living room}

Last night's episode was fantastic, Sarah and Tommy have done it again! I love that this contemporary feeling space still got that special 'Sarah' touch! Did you watch it? The room recieved a beautiful grey and soft yellow palette, and the perfect amount of texture with a grasscloth wall. Well here are some of the highlights that I really loved:


Don't know if you can tell in the photos but the artwork above the sofa is illuminated from behind! How neat!! {And it was the homeowners photography that was used, a nice personal touch}.

I loved all of the mid-century pieces they re-upholstered, perfect for this contemporary space.


How about that zebra rug? Fabulous or fabulous?? It's from West Elm, and Sarah and Tommy had 2 rugs sewn together width wise to create a rug large enough for the space. Fantastic trick!

Sarah placed a built in banquette in the dining area which saved a lot of room in a very small space. And lastly, the touches of gold were right up my alley, I fell for the light fixture, and then Sarah mentioned it was made in Egypt and I wanted it so bad!! Lovely and exotic.


Hope you enjoyed the episode as much as I did!

I didn't watch Sarah yesterday, sniff....I was begged to come to work and then in the evening D had a basketball game. Sigh.. I need a PVR!

Love the room though. Love the modern touches to the mid-century furniture! Love how Sarah and Tommy have such a versatile approach to decorating.

I also want to say how much I love your posts. They are so beautifully and tastefully put together. Wish I had half the style as you!

I really liked this episode as well- loved all the mid-century furniture and I thought the banquet was a brilliant use of space in the dining area. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the lightbox art- I just didn't think it worked in that space. I loved loved that pendant light though- so fab!

That light fixture is absolutely stunning

Gorgeous space! The zebra rug caught my eye immediately, what a great idea to sow two together! I love Sarah's work. I am not a fan of the light box though, it looks too much like a TV to me =) The pendant light is out of this world, go Egypt!!

Wasn't one of my favourite Sarah rooms but I loved the drapery fabric and the brass pendant. They are from a company called SNOB in Toronto and I mentioned them in my IDS post - so pretty!

So sweet contemporary design.
I just enjoyed your post. After watching this design most people would like to design their home interior in this way.
