{sarah richardson's blue & white kitchen}


Ok, a quick follow-up to my last post on Sarah's newest show Real Potential. Thank you for weighing in with your thoughts & comments, I really appreciated hearing what you all thought of it!

I fully agree that the days of 'Design Inc.,' have been severely missed. And all of the decorating shows seem to be veering further towards real estate as a main focus! I want good ol' fashion design & décor, and it seems you do too. And PS. several of you mentioned missing Tommy ... I couldn't agree more; the network decided Sarah was the one with the real-life real estate background so it would be more of a fit for her alone. Tommy himself jokingly states that he's lost money on every real-estate move he's made!

Now the question will be, does the network actually accomplish the gain of male-viewers they are after, or will they simply lose the loyal female fans in the process? I guess time will tell. Sarah, you are still my design hero!! And for that reason I'm trying hard to focus on the last 5 mins of every episode which blasts the viewer with the decorating. Here's a gorgeous blue, white & brass kitchen from the latest episode, first the bare-bones before {so you can fully appreciate the afters!}:

Love all of the brass accents! And those slabs of marble look good enough to eat.  I'd love to hear your opinions :)

This kitchen is absolutely stunning.
The brass bar running under the table, totally knock out and unexpected! The key to the kitchen is certainly the brass accents, mixed with the blue it becomes very eye catching and not like every other run of the mill white kitchen.
I was so disappointed I could not get the show here in CT.

Sarah never disappoints...and I am beside myself with excitement, because I never got rid of my vintage brass candlesticks! I am crazy for all the brass and gold thats showing up everywhere, and Sarah just does it so well. This is an amazing room that I feel holds the right quota of traditional and classic, with hip & fun.
Like you Nancy, I feel, there can never be enough SR Design on T.V.. And I figure if real estate isn't his thing, design sure is so why doesn't Tommy have his own show!

Wow, it's stunning, some folk are so ambitious, a change of wallpaper is a big project for me.

LOVE! I am really pushing my multi-family developers to consider brass. Such a great example. Not to mention that blue lacquer is insane.

I would have never put the chevron curtains and floral wallpaper together, but it totally works! Leave it to Sarah Richardson. Also loving all the gold!!

those brass fixtures and amazing light fixtures are stunning! A word of advice to the powers that be...if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

diane said...

Regardless of the format, Sarah is a genius. Although I am much more interested in her design aesthetics than her real estate skills...word to the producers...don't mess with success!

The interior design is great. Wonderful look it has got.

HEAVEN! I love everything about that kitchen. Love the white, love the gold accents and love all those prints mixed together! It also feels like it would be easy to trade out the color without changing the bones!

Amanda said...

I've never actually seen the show you're talking about!! I love Property Brothers! Nonetheless this kitchen is gorgeous! The blue is an unexpected color compared to all the green kitchens we've seen lately!

I totally agree with your comments: we want Design inc. back! A show about design and mixing patterns and colors and ... I was disapointed with Sarah's new show. We want to see all the transformation not only one tiny room but everything!!

Oh my, that kitchen is fantastic! I especially love the wallpaper and curtain combo in same color family but competing patterns. Very brave and we need designers challenging us like that to step outside of neutrals as accents! Jenn at East Meets South

Its so funny how trends do come back around, I remember 15 years ago when blue islands were popular. THis is a fun kitchen, I love her style and she is so nice too!
