Large, White Modern Living Room From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson transformed this once drafty, dated space into a warm and inviting modern living room with plenty of room to relax and entertain. The textured stucco walls were skim-coated for a smooth appearance and a red brick wall was updated with a fresh coat of white paint. Sarah filled the space with chic, mid-century modern furnishings and replaced old carpet with neutral wood flooring for a warm, inviting look.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
The master bathroom is big on personality, if not on space. The concrete tile floor is meant to evoke the look of a folk art quilt. The vanity and mirror are pretty as a picture in robin's egg blue. And shiplap walls match the paneling used throughout the house.
If you have solid but unremarkable builder-grade cabinets, the simplest route to a high-end look is adding some height with crown molding. Interior designer Sarah Macklem of The Yellow Cape Cod tackled this project in her own kitchen with striking results.
