Sarah Richardson offers a variety of design tips, including how to maximize space in a small area, how to make a room warm and inviting and how to create a functional and stunning bedroom. Her tips can be found on her website, in her book and on HGTV.
To maximize the use of a small space, Sarah Richardson suggests using furniture that doubles as storage. For example, an ottoman with storage provides a place to keep blankets and remotes. Or, build a secret storage console that holds a television and corrals toys.
Sarah suggests using different kinds of fabrics to create warmth in an industrial-type living space or bedroom. Mix textures, such as glossy and flat paints and materials, to make a room feel soft and chic. Add bright colors to a room for a vibrant, personal touch.
Sarah Richardson offers design tips for all kinds of bedrooms, from nurseries to master bedrooms to shared bedrooms. For a nursery, consider using furniture that can grow with child, not something that he or she won't need after the toddler years. Master bedrooms benefit from a hotel or spa-like design, with plush pillows and neutral colors. Create more play space in a shared bedroom by putting beds end-to-end to open up the floor.
