My New Muse?

Have you seen the new show Sarah’s House on HGTV?  I think I missed the first couple of episodes; the one I saw was this past Saturday night.

Sarah is not entirely new to HGTV.  I seem to remember a show a few years ago called Design Inc.  Also, I believe that HGTV stateside is a late-comer on the Sarah’s House scene.  Sarah is Canadian (woo hoo, fellow Canuck!), and I think the show has already aired up there on HGTV Canada.  According to the website, she is now working on Sarah’s Cottage.

Anyway, the episode I saw was about her master bedroom renovation, and I was smitten.  Love!

Sarah says “I like a room that seems bright and airy during daylight hours but can transition into a moody, sultry space when twilight falls.” source

The color scheme is gray and cream.  So tranquil.  So….sultry!



I’m actually not a huge fan of the nightstands or dresser, but the look as a whole makes me swoon.


Oh to have the dark hardwood floors!


I’ve already put Craig on alert that this summer we are going to redo our bedroom.  I’ve been looking for inspiration, and this just went to the top of the list!

Can’t wait to see the other episodes!  (I may cheat and look through them all at the HGTV Canada website!)

Neat! I haven't seen that show before, but it sounds like one I would like. :) Does she renovate rooms in her house over different episodes?

I love Sarah!! She is on the Design network if you have it!

I loved her show Room Service that was on DIY Network forever (still is? I don't have that channel anymore!). Glad to see that she's finally getting the recognition she deserves ;) All her rooms, regardless of style, are utter perfection!

My master bedroom is the one room in the house that feels like I can never quite get right. Too formal, too casual, too cluttered, too sparse.....UGH! Good luck with yours.

I love her work! She always picks the nicest palates. What great inspiration!

OK, OK, I will stop lurking and comment.... HGTV has already shown Sarah's Cottage here in Canada, although calling it a cottage is somewhat of an understatement as you will see when you watch it!
I love love love your powder room sink and plan on copying it as soon as I have a place too, but I am very glad gramma's mirror was not harmed in creating it!
Love ya!

Wow...what serenity! We don't have cable and haven't watched tv in 20 years so I'm out of the loop with the decorating shows...which is prolly a good thing!

How exciting that you are going to do a bedroom re-do. I got to do mine a few years ago. Up until then, we didn't even have a headboard! It all started when my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Boy, did he do good!

Great big tooth smiles,

I love Sarah {and Tommy!} She's done two houses and one cottage so far ~ just fabulous!

Delurking...I love her!

I have been a fan since Room Service [in Texas we saw it on HGTV] and I dvr her shows on FLN here.

I forgot to set my recorder to save until I delete for her shows. Some sports show ran over and snagged the space from Design Inc this past Sunday since my 6 year old had 66 episodes of The Brady Bunch saved. Needless to say the Brady's have been brought down to 6 episodes and Sarah's House and Design Inc episodes are now safe until I delete them! Now I just have to wait until Saturday when they air here to see more.

How I wish I could have her come to Texas and do my house!!
