these things are a delight.

This kitchen is making me so happy to know that it exists in the world. I love the charm of british interiors, and this whole house is quite good. 


Have you seen the amazing work of Ron Nicole? Her flower fossils are breathtaking and the world she creates/shares on her Instagram is just so beautiful. Someday I’ll buy one of her pieces. 

I made this soup last night and didn’t even add the beer and it was amazing. Have i mentioned I really enjoy cooking? I do. Very convenient as I do a lot of it these days with two young children and a sick husband. :) Make this bread to go with it. Thank me later. 

So glad that we live in a world where Call the Midwife has another new season on Netflix.

A great, thought provoking article from a much needed voice. 

That’s it for now lovelies! Have a great rest of the week. 

xo, Sarah


for your consideration

I feel as though Mondays need a bit of inspiration to start off the week. Here are some things that have inspired me lately. 


This British stylist’s home. So quirky and a bit busy, but those bathroom tiles are so dreamy. Handpainted! I love it. 


This brilliant article in T Magazine. The history of these buildings is so interesting and the ruinous grandeur that is being slowly restored is just beautiful. Personally, this is just the phase of restoration I would want to stop at. Perfect! 

I am kind of bored of many fashion brands, but I really liked Ulla Johnson’s recent show. I loved her “meditation on craft” as she called it. Also her use of past fabric scraps in the quilted pieces is a great idea and what all fashion companies should be doing. 

The beautiful color on Scribble & Daub’s booth at a Brides fair in London seems like the perfect color for this fall.  And somehow reminds me of this delicious pumpkin bread that I am definitely making this week. 

Hope you have a great week, friends! xo

I shared this on Instagram, but I think it’s worth sharing here for posterity, also I am an old millennial, therefore, I still have a soft spot for blogs. I’m starting fresh, so here is a new journal to share some story and inspiration with you. 

So, after 4-ish years of designing I’ve decided to make some changes. One being a new name! Sarah York Designs is now Suna Studio. Pronounced, sun-ah.✌🏼The name is kind of a take on the Gaelic word for “happiness”. My work is about bringing happiness through design, and I have Irish roots a few generations back, so it just seemed right. 🍀 I’m also changing the way I approach design, call it “slow”surface pattern design. More hand painted designs, more simplicity, more emphasis on well made and ethically made products. Less waste. Not fast fashion. I want to design things that will last and can be re-used or can be recycled, and won’t hurt people or the planet in the process. I’m so thankful for you following along on my journey and hope that you’ll stick around for this next chapter. 

Thank you bunches friends! xo, Sarah
