TORONTO, April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Simon & Schuster Canada and Gallery Books are pleased to announce the acquisition of sensational designer Sarah Richardson's debut book, Sarah Style: An Inspiring Room by Room Guide to Designing Your Perfect Home, to be published in fall 2014.
Sarah Richardson is one of North America's most recognized and trusted designers. She began her career as a prop stylist and set decorator for lifestyle television programs, but soon moved out from behind the scenes to take her place in front of the camera as a beloved HGTV personality. Sarah is an award-winning designer and the host, co-creator, and co-producer of five top-rated HGTV television shows broadcast in more than 100 countries: Room Service, Design Inc., Sarah's House (Sarah's Cottage), Sarah 101 and Real Potential.
Sarah Style will provide a comprehensive room by room resource and guide to renovations and interior design as expressed in Sarah's much admired signature style. Filled with stunning full-colour photographs of rooms designed by Sarah, this book combines innovative ideas with practical advice while delivering insights and wisdom from nearly two decades in design. Sarah Style is the long-awaited interior design resource packed with helpful instructions, detailed style notes, and inspiring visuals. Written by Sarah as a means to share her insights on all matters of design and style, this book is the equivalent of having your favourite designer on call for any project, big or small.
"We are thrilled to be working with Sarah," says Kevin Hanson, President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster Canada. "This will be the biggest Canadian book featuring the work of a single designer. Sarah has poured her heart into this ambitious project. Every page reflects the essence of her impeccable vision and work."
"Simon & Schuster is the ideal partner for my first design book," says Sarah Richardson. "As a global publishing powerhouse, they can help leverage the international profile of my brand while delivering an innovative and beautiful book to design enthusiasts worldwide. My goal in writing Sarah Style is to share my passion for design while making beautiful rooms accessible and achievable for homeowners everywhere. I live and breathe design every day through my work, so sharing tips and insights, solutions and ideas with a broad-based audience is immensely satisfying. I hope the book inspires readers with great ideas, while educating and empowering them to make every room in their home the best it can be."
Sarah runs a high demand design firm, Sarah Richardson Design Inc., working on both commercial and residential spaces. Sarah has designed and developed a signature fabric line for Kravet Collections, and is in development on many other lifestyle product lines.
