Intimate Living Room

Warm browns and smoky greys make this high-ceilinged space seem more cosy.

Designer Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's Sarah's House and Sarah's Cottage, decorated this "Millionaire Designer Home" for the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation Lottery. "I wanted it to have a coastal feel: a breezy, light-hearted tone that was sophisticated and elegant, too," she explains. Velvet-upholstered furniture and wood add a sumptuous note to the living room, while mirrors add sparkle.
