Episode 390: Sarah Blank

Listen to this episode

During her nearly 35 years as a kitchen designer, Sarah Blank has worked on a multitude of projects in locations as varied as Connecticut, New York, Palm Beach, Houston Texas, and Los Angeles. Having earned a BA in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, Sarah has embraced classicism since Richard Sammons of Fairfax & Sammons Architects introduced her to its language in 1994. Her constant analysis of his work, and time spent studying at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art, helped Sarah to develop an understanding that a beautiful and functional kitchen is not only an integral part of the architecture of the house, but the very heart of the home.

Sarah and her team approach each project from the basis of a strong technical background that allows them to work beyond the kitchen and into other rooms of the home. A strong referral base and repeat business comes from successfully designing spaces that even after 20 years, function and look as good today as they did when they were created.

A proud member of the Decorator’s Club of New York, which for over one hundred years has continued to evoke a spirit of excellence that symbolizes the best the industry has to offer, Sarah is also involved with the Institute of Classical Architecture New York Chapter.  A lover of education and the arts, Sarah is the co-chair for the Decorator Club Scholarship awards.  Sarah has taught at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and has lectured for the Traditional Home Building Show. Sarah lives in Connecticut with her Husband Charles, son David, and two dogs, Ollie, and Beau.
