Okay another week, another Sarah 101 episode! I know you’ve all been glued to HGTV on Tuesday’s to see what design adventures Sarah’s team has been up to. This week featured a black, white and beeswax candle yellow kitchen and a smokey, sophisticated master bedroom.
Now, I knew this day would come since I knew something disastrous happened to me while working on Carlene’s kitchen. So when the episode aired, my friend Kristin texted me at the store to fill me in. Here’s an exact transcript of said texts:
Kristin: Ohmygosh today’s Sarah 101 you locked your keys in the car?!! Bahaha
Michael: Oh brother! I don’t wanna see it!
Kristin: Don’t worry…it’s fleeting, but funny!
When I got home and watched it on PVR I cringed. And smiled. But mostly cringed. Luckily Sara had fallen asleep and hasn’t seen it…yet. But back to the show – here’s Carlene’s lacklustre kitchen BEFORE…
And AFTER some design magic!
With a mixture of black and white Ikea cabinets, stone counters, architectural salvage and some ebony/ivory looking knobs, this kitchen has tons of personality. I was especially proud of the brass topped canisters I found for this one and the vintage yellow tea towels from my friends at Found. Click on the Found link and you can by the very same ones Sarah and Tommy did! And the long mirror above was the topic of much discussion one late evening (same day I locked the keys in the car) but I think it looks fantastic here!
Now, here’s Jaime and Rob’s classic but boring bedroom BEFORE:
And here it is AFTER some gorgeous smokey paint has been applied, some charming romans, an amazing headboard, and KILLER lamps that remind me very much of Bunny Williams lamps, even though these ones are vintage. Good find Tommy and Sarah!
Moody and romantic, patterned and glossy, this bedroom has it all. It certainly lives up to the potential of this house and just might be my favourite room so far in this season of Sarah 101. But what do you think?
