{sarah's house 4: boy's bedroom & master bedroom}

I was excited to find out that the Master bedroom was up this week on Sarah's House. That is typically one of my favorite episodes so I was curious to see what Sarah & Tommy would do this time around.

First, I'll give you a look at the boy's bedroom which was also completed, in a lovely grey, black & white palette. Everything they did in the boy's room looked clean, classic and simple to me and it's a room I would imagine to stand the test of time:

To me the concept and color scheme are not trendy and that is actually what I love about it! With kids rooms I think it's a bonus if you can design a space they aren't going to 'out-grow' in 1-2 years! The adjoining bathroom is fit for a king: marble counter, beautiful hardware, and lovely swing-arm lamps:

Now on to the Master suite: a serene palette of green and apricot {pulled from 4 botanical prints} create a very calming effect:

Pretty right? I am digging Sarah's own headboard design, and I love that there are defined spaces within the room. One thing that made me cringe was the fact that Sarah took a lovely desk with brass legs {only $105} and had them replaced with walnut, I loved the desk the way it was much more! Regardless, she created a very pretty vignette which included a fab chair they found in perfect condition for only $51 dollars!

All in all, a very classic and appealing room! I wish I had that much space, with a total of 354 sq. feet they had the opportunity to create such lovely domains within one room. That kind of large space is definitely on my dream home wish list :)

Love the bed(s) - but esp. the headboard in the boy's room.

P.S. Today's my blogiversary, and I'm hosting my first-ever giveaway!

wait....seriously that desk had brass legs and she switched it out for walnut!?! i want to cry...
going to go watch the episode online now! I just started getting into her show...tommy cracks me up. her style of design surprised me - especially for a toronto designer, she has a bit of a country house vibe going on, which isn't totally my thing. It's funny, some of her designs i LOVE, and then the next one I just don't at all - different styles i guess - but the show is great!

Beautiful master bedroom. I love the fabric on the bench at the end of the bed and the soft feel of the room.
I have been a fan of Sarah and Tommy's for quite a while now. I have to say that I still like the show, but this season it seems a bit staged to me. I like the unpolished and candid Sarah and Tommy, but I'll continue to watch!

These rooms best represent what I consider to be Sarah's signature style. Some of the other spaces in this series seem to be trying too hard to not be cookie-cutter, and have ended up being a little over the top.
I love Sarah, and I'm happy to see a return to her beautiful design style.

I love the headboard and the bench at the foot of the bed. Not so crazy about the curtains, but it seems to be in keeping with their taste. That bathroom is awesome. I love the mirror!

OK, once again I am not wowed. I love some of the elements but so much of this house does not have those bold pops of color she usally uses and the signature pillows. HOWEVER, I am so glad you posted these Nancy. I love Sarah, from room service thru design inc and all the houses. I just do not think this is her best work. Now tell me is that just white paint on the wall behind the bed. The way it is bordered off is wonderful!
