But, to get to my point, she is about to become part of my house. Not literally, but her paint line. Hopefully. My husband and I have been endlessy searching for a new paint color for our walls. Several discouraging sample cans later, I finally suggested trying Sarah's paint line from Para Paint. I have to admit though, I was a little disappointed to find out that she simply renamed existing Para Paint colors, and didn't actually create them herself...but, regardless, if she uses them, I'll try them!! Today I'm going to pick up sample cans of her "Linen" color (aka "Comfortable Chinos") and one shade darker "Sturdy Trivet" (not renamed and used as the Sarah Richardson line....). The picture below doesn't do the colors justice though... click on the Para link above for better color viewing.
How could you not be a fan of Sarah Richardson?? I mean, just take a look at some of her designs....

This is where I first fell in love with the marble & glass tile combination....Ah....if only this could be my bathroom!

Makes me want to have a wallpaper feature wall in my own house... (sigh)....
Oh, I could go on and keep posting more pictures of her work...but I won't. Not today at least. But there will be more later. I promise you that. When picking out stuff for my own house, I often ask myself, "What would Sarah do?". Hopefully I've learned a thing or two from watching her over the years.
