This past weekend at the Calgary Renovation Show we had the pleasure of seeing Sarah Richardson speak in person. If you’ve seen any of Sarah’s shows on HGTV, you’ll know that she’s a passionate design guru. Many a Canadian seek Sarah’s divinely design wisdom on a daily basis. Hence her many occupations: writer, producer, TV personality and public speaker. But it is through running her own design firm for the last 20 years that she has cultivated her style and her insights that she now shares with worldwide audiences.
It might be surprising to hear that such a successful designer has a fairly simple design philosophy. She confessed to her Calgary audience that she sticks to some pretty simple principles. Thankfully, she was happy to disclose those in the name of her encouraging homeowners to “live in style and love their homes”. Here are three of our favorites and how flooring fits into the picture.
