Today's Obsession

I know. I've been under a rock. Have you seen Sarah's House? It comes on weird times here, (8:30 Saturday night- and I'm so popular that I'm never home- just kidding) but I just started DVR-ing it. I'm obsessed/weirded out. I've watched two episodes, and I think we might share a design brain. I don't throw that around. This is serious business. Below are two pictures, each from the episodes that I've seen. The first one was this bedroom:
I know everyone loves the Celerie Kemble for Schumacher fabrics. But does everyone want to pair Hot House flowers with that Schumacher ikat? I want to. I have them together in my special "when I can really decorate our house" drawer. By the way, I'm talking about the floral pillows on the bed mixed with the multi-colored diamond patterned fabric that is the banding on the window treatments.
Next, wouldn't change a thing about this bathroom:
Even Stephen said he'd seen me bring that yellow and graphite floral fabric home. Bizarre, and yet fabulous. I'm glad my house dreams are unfolding for someone :)

Let's also talk about her logo. The name of my company is Foster House Interior Design. My logo idea has always been to incorporate a simple outline of a house. (I know. I don't have a logo yet. One day soon I hope.) Really because this is hers. I can't find a picture of it online that I can paste in here, but if you're curious about her logo or projects, you can go to I know. I also try to avoid HGTV as a serious source, but this is an exception.

Can I also add something to my post about 9 by Design? Watch Sarah's House and then watch that show. Can you tell who's the professional? Like the real deal professional? Please say yes.

Happy Monday!


  1. I have watched multiple seasons of this show!! :) And clearly not b/c I have any design sense but because I think her before/afters are stunning!

  2. Can I please just get your design brain to come take up residence in my brain now... I love every bit of your fabulous style.
