In this episode they took a dusty rose room with many country design inspirations (fake flowers, wreaths, floral everything). I liked some of the specific pieces in the room, in particular the new closet doors (they look much more modern), the reupholstered chairs (great chairs for a bedroom!), and the coffee table bench at the end of the bed (we have our own DIY version - post to come soon!). A great move by Sarah was to put a mirrored insert on top of the end tables. She was originally looking at fully mirrored end tables, but I think they would have been too much for the room and probably too small to flank the king size bed. I liked this episode for the amount of potential doable DIY projects (she obviously used her painters/refinishers, but a lot of it could be done yourself). Overall it was a good application of Sarah's signature style, and it seemed to really suit the client.
We had a doozy of a weather day here in Toronto. We have had rain, slush, freezing rain, snow. Definitely made it difficult to walk around the city! To make things a bit better the new Food&Drink magazine from LCBO came out today. It is spring central. I have my eye on recipes for great looking carrot cakes, warm israeli couscous, tuna & roasted tomato salad, and maple mustard pork medallions. And, my fave feature in this issue? A double kitchen timer, for when you have more than 1 thing on the go (I regularly have my oven timer, microwave timer, and phone timer on the go!)
