The list of interior designers that I admire is a long one. It includes nationally recognized designers as well as designers just starting out and making a name for themselves.
One of the designers that I admire greatly is Sarah Bartholomew. Sarah launched her design business in 2010 and her work has appeared in publications like House Beautiful and Southern Living. With a design aesthetic described as a ‘fresh take on classic design’, many of the spaces she creates reflect my personal style. The rooms are filled with personality and interest as well as a mix of textures and materials.
In studying Sarah’s work you’ll recognize that she is a master of color and pattern mixing. And she has a flair for accessorizing. I also love her use of chinoiserie decor, antique pieces and natural elements. Let’s take a tour through the Sarah Bartholomew Design portfolio. Enjoy!

Attention to every detail including the fixtures, hardware and finishes

Design details that add style and personality
Pattern mixing that creates energy and vibrancy
A masterful mix of materials and finishes that work together to define a space
There’s so much to love about the work of Sarah Bartholomew’s work and I’m hoping that one day she publishes a book to showcase her designs.
In addition to loving Sarah’s design work, I’m smitten with her blog, Sarah’s Studio. Each blog post is short and sweet and gives you a glimpse into her design life and what’s inspiring her.
