One of my favorite design shows is Sarah's House on HGTV. It's hard to catch and doesn't air as frequently as many of their other shows, but when it's on, I am glued.
It follows Canadian designer Sarah Richardson as she purchases a home and fixes it up room by room. Each episode focuses on the makeover of one specific space. Most recently she fixed up "Sarah's House 2" also known as a mid-century split back in Toronto.
Visit her portfolio for more images.
She took a very confusing split level space and created something quite beautiful. She's mindful about creating spaces that are actually live-able and she does try to stick to a budget (although hers is much more than mine will ever be!)
