A FINE BAL­ANCE

I try to stream­line my rou­tines and make them as ef­fi­cient as pos­si­ble. I’m up be­fore 6:45 so I can be cam­era- or of­fice-ready and so we can have break­fast to­gether as a fam­ily. I’ve never had hair or makeup peo­ple on set; in­stead, I’ve mas­tered a DIY rou­tine that hap­pens quickly. I have sen­si­tive skin (and no time to spare!), so I rely on the Mar­celle line of Re­vival+ prod­ucts to help me look my best dur­ing long days on the road and on the run.

When you’re a work­ing mom, the days seem to y by. nd when you’re Sarah Richard­son— a de­signer and TV host, too—the world moves at light speed. ow does she man­age it all with such style? We took a peek into a typ­i­cal day of this busy entrepreneur to nd out.

8:30 a.m. My daugh­ters, Robin, 11, and Fiona, 9, go to a neigh­bour­hood school. We all walk there with our dog, Daisy—it’s a great way to kick off the morn­ing, get some fresh air and be ready for what­ever the day de­liv­ers! Once I get Daisy back home, I hop into the car and head straight to the of­fice.

9:30 a.m. Col­lab­o­ra­tion is the name of the game in my of­fice. Shar­ing ideas and re­view­ing plans at ev­ery step of a project with mem­bers of my team like Shan­non Mor­ri­son (above) is how we de­liver new cre­ative so­lu­tions that in­spire us ev­ery day.

2:30 p.m. De­vel­op­ing new prod­ucts is one of the ma­jor perks of my ca­reer af­ter 20 years in the busi­ness. I just launched my sec­ond fab­ric collection for Kravet this year, and I’m putting the fin­ish­ing touches on a wall­pa­per line while start­ing to de­velop other prod­ucts as well.

6:30 p.m. I’m usu­ally home for din­ner—i love to cook. If you won­der what’s on the menu at my house, you’ll find lots of fresh in­gre­di­ents! Eat­ing healthy home-cooked meals is part of my fam­ily phi­los­o­phy and the key to be­ing able to keep up with my hec­tic life­style.

7 p.m. In our house, noth­ing is off lim­its, and ev­ery room is de­signed to be used and en­joyed. Fam­ily din­ners are served in our open-con­cept kitchen and din­ing room. I make sure to end the day as a fam­ily—i think it’s the best way for us to stay con­nected.
