Sarah Richardson Brightens Up The Marilyn Denis Show

Did you know that Sarah Richardson once was a house painter? As a university student this designer-to-be spent a summer painting homes and in doing so developed her deep appreciation for colour, application techniques and just how effective a new coat of paint can be on brightening up any room in the home.

Flash forward 15 years and Sarah is an internationally-renowned designer, the popular host and co-producer of many top-rated HGTV series and even has her very own 75 colour palette with PARA Paints.  On Wed., May 18, Sarah was invited to be a guest on The Marilyn Denis Show to share how she finds inspiration in selecting paint. Everything from a summertime sky, wild flowers, and the way a meadow blends into the woods finds its way into Sarah’s designer palette and walls!

Sarah then demonstrated some painting tips all the while managing not to get one drop of paint on her Smythe blazer or 4” heels. The live audience all left with both the PARA and Sarah Richardson Designer Palette fandecks as well as a $50 gift certificate to PARA Paints.
