I rent. This may not be such a big ‘confession’ to lots of people, but let me explain. I feel like a chef without her kitchen; a queen without her castle; a fat kid with an empty belly! I could go on and on. Ok, I am being a bit melodramatic. But with renting, there is only cosmetic changes that one can make to a dwelling. I imagine walls being knocked down, a total kitchen redo, a dirty full blown renovation is what I want! But alas, I do what I can. I decorate as much as I can and it calms the hunger for now. One day…one day…
That is why I have serious envy for designer Sarah Richardson. I love her job and her life! If you haven’t heard of her, the canadian designer has 3 shows on HGTV: Sarah’s House, Sarah’s House II, and Sarah’s Summer Cottage. She takes on a renovation for each of the shows but the genius part is that the fixer-uppers belong to her. How awesome to get paid for something that is so personal and a dream. Sarah, watch out, I may have just given you the evil eye. Here is some of her work:
Yellow is actually one of my least favorite colors. But she really makes it look lovely.
Love, love her! Did I convince you too?
