There was so much we talked about (and I'm sure you want to hear all the inside info) so I'll do a two-part post about the event. Today, do you want to take a peek at the Sarah Richardson Design offices?
I arrived at Sarah's downtown Toronto office eager to see the space where she works and creates. I had seen its transformation on an episode of Design Inc. so was curious to see if it had changed. It was a bright white open concept office in Sarah's signature palette of soft greens and blues.
Vanessa, Christine and Stacie checking out the office. That's Lindsay working away in the background. Remember her as the intern on Design Inc.?
There were furniture pieces designed by Sarah all around the office. Here's the sitting area near the entry. I could easily have this as my living room. Look at the fab chandelier!
We assembled for a group photo before the interview. I think we were all a bit excited and nervous...
...but as soon as Tommy jumped into the pic, we all loosened up a bit!
A few vignettes around the office: a stylish bookcase and chair. Lots of pattern on the fabrics and on the books!
Not even this little corner was left forgotten. Lovely ethereal artwork on the walls (and TV equipment hanging overhead).
A table piled high with inspiration. Wonder what the gnome was for? And Sarah's kitchen behind. I loved the full tiled wall and that white metal artwork.
A gorgeous wheatsheaf table.
And the fabulous boardroom! Love that thick marble table and ornate mirror. Of course, I had to take a peek at Sarah's inspiration board. Hmm, I see lots of pics of striped stairs! New trend alert folks ;)
So that's a look behind the scenes at Sarah Richardson design. Next post, I'll tell you all about the new show, Sarah 101, and share why I think Sarah is the smartest woman in design today.
(and that's why these folks are on TV. Its impossible to take a bad photo of them!)
