Sarah 101: Premiere Episode

****Spoiler Alert****

Did everyone enjoy last night's premiere episode of Sarah 101 on HGTV Canada? Sarah used a bright colour palette, which we really haven't seen from her for awhile, and it was FUN!! I can't get over how much I love the stunning pink sofa. The contrast piping is a small detail, but it adds a dash of interest:

The fantastic chairs which Sarah & Tommy found at Chair Table Lamp have a great shape, and are perfectly suited to a bright and bold floral print. I also couldn't help but notice the fabulous Eames Hang-It-All in the entryway:

The dining room gets a touch of glam from the chandelier overhead, while Sarah's DIY plate wall offers affordable art. I'm not sure I love plates as art, but hey, it's an idea:

The overall space: Colourful, cohesive, and comfortable:

What did you think of the first episode Sarah 101? I know I'll be watching again next week!! If you missed last night's show, it will air again this Sunday, January 9th, on HGTV Canada at 9:30 am and 8:00 pm EST. Or you can watch it online HERE (only in Canada).

  1. May not have been what I would necessarily pick for my own home but I loved the punches of colour. I loved that oversized gold mirror too.

  2. Thank you so much for the recap. I live in Texas and don't get the new show. I LOVE Sarah,

  3. The fabric on the chair seems very much like the fabric they used for chairs in the Farm House bedroom (with the orange lamps. Interesting and fun, thanks for the pic's.

  4. The fabric does have a similar bold, vibrant floral motif. See the farmhouse bedroom photos in this post:

  5. I live in Buffalo and am sooo close to the darn border, but I don't get HGTV Canada. I love Sarah and hope that our HGTV will carry the new show soon!

  6. I loved the first episode of Sarah 101 :-) It was great to see Sarah & Tommy use such fun & bold patters & colours. And I can't get over all the awesome second-hand finds - they must have thrift store radar or something!

  7. thanks for the pictures, I was out of town last tuesday and missed the show, I will watch it this sunday... again thanks
