Sarah Off The Grid and Cozy Weekends

|
I have been a huge Sarah Richardson fan since here Design 101 days. I've watched all of her home shows, seen the Christmas special, and have followed her adventures for as long as I can remember. What I love most is the classic elegance that epitomizes her style; the clean lines and cool toned neutrals mixed with gorgeous statement, but timeless, pieces. And really, the only reason that I want to move out is so that I can decorate my own place and make a mood board based on Sarah's spaces. On September 10th, Sarah Off The Grid aired, which is her new series where she designs her new country home from the ground up, making every aspect of the process as sustainable as possible. As someone who majored in environmental studies, the process is so interesting to me to see all the advancements in green design. You can watch the series at 10pm every Sunday on HGTV (it's also on demand in case you missed the first two episodes!)

In the first episode, Sarah designed a belvedere--a beautiful, cozy room at the top of the house to relax in and overlook the beautiful landscape of the Niagara Escarpment. It inspired me to think of how I would design my own cozy space and what elements I would want if I had my own cozy nook. Obviously, I still live at home, which makes it hard to style a space that isn't entirely your own.

But for me, a cozy space involves good books, whether that's books on design or fashion or some thought-provoking fiction. It involves warm and cozy blankets, like this stunning Sarah Richardson design one I was sent. It involves cozy pillows to rest your back on, and some scented candles--preferably pumpkin or apple ones this time of year. I'm a huge fan of the Chapters and Anthropologie ones!

I've already complied a list of books that I want to get to this autumn, and I can't wait until it cools down enough to cuddle up with a throw blanket and pillow, turn the fire place on, grab a cup of herbal tea (or apple cider if I'm feeling adventurous) and enjoy the weekend.
