I met Sarah Richardson

One of the INSPIRE highlights was the keynote speech presented by designer Sarah Richardson, the host and co-producer of the popular HGTV shows, “Sarah’s House”, “Design Inc.”, and “Sarah 101” who spoke about her decorating philosophy and the impact her TV shows have had on the process of decorating.


All of her designs start with fabrics and that is what gives the room it’s direction. She uses 10 to 12 fabrics per room and uses a mix of cottons, silks and velvets to add texture.



My favorite Sarah quotes of the day:

“As a designer you are only as good as your team.”


“I would leave no windows undressed.”

Are you looking forward to her new season ?

Custom window treatments can be the single most important element in pulling together your decorating scheme. 
Contact me to provide you with up to date window treatments that you are excited about.

Tammy, what a treat and a delight it must have been to hear Sarah. I've loved her since her early, early days on HGTV. I've always loved how she uses fabric and repurposes items & furniture in her designs. And I agree! No window should be left untreated!
