About Sarah

Sarah Brittain is the interior designer behind the Florida-based design firm, Sarah Brittain Design and the editor of the lifestyle and design blog, Othertain.

While earning her BS in interior design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Sarah worked as a model in Miami and had the opportunity to work with some of the fashion industry’s greatest talents. From these designers she learned about the art of presentation and how design has the power to change the way we see the world and ourselves. She moved to Boston after graduating and continued to work dually in interior design and as a model. After several years spent there (and a new marriage and baby), Sarah toted her new family back to Florida to sink roots into her home state and escape those frigid Boston winters. When she’s not busy designing or blogging, you will find her hanging out with her husband and kids, drinking wine with friends and posting too many pics on Instagram.
