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.
