The One Where Sue Meets Bryan & Scott

Last weekend, I represented Newberry Sykes at BlogPodium, Canada’s premier conference for home, decor and lifestyle bloggers (if you’re wondering why Mere wasn’t with me, check out her Instagram feed for a clue…) I know most of you visit Newberry Sykes for decorating inspiration and not a recap of a blogging conference, but I feel […]

Chez Newb: Upcycling Cupboard Doors

After a mini cupboard demolition in our bathroom and a major demolition in our kitchen, I’m feeling confident that I’ve read about every possible re-use for cupboards and cupboard doors on the Interwebs. So here’s a quick project I did this week that I thought I’d share with you. It’s kinda goofy, but it did […]

The Gift of Time + Paint Progress

I was going to put together one of those Mother’s Day gift roundups that are popping up on all the blogs this week, but when I really thought about what I would like for Mother’s Day, just one thing came to mind: TIME. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that […]

Friday Fun: Before & Afters

I don’t know about you, but some weeks I feel like Friday should be re-named “Fried”-day. As in, my brain is fried. This is one of them. It was a good, but busy, week and I’m ready for a little weekend fun starting NOW. I put together a bunch of before and after photos from […]

Wild Card: Week In Review (And A Bit About Area Rugs)

How was your week? Mine was pretty busy. I was in Toronto for a couple of days catching up with the Decorating Den team at our regional meeting and had the chance to tour a few supplier showrooms. We got to see and touch the new rug collection by Steven & Chris at Hellenic Rugs, […]

Big News

  In case you didn’t hear our deafening squeals of excitement clear across North America this week, we have some HUGE news to share. Hint: it involves paint. Lots of paint. Remember our video audition for the Para Paints 2014 Blog Crew? Well, they liked us. They really liked us. Enough that we have earned […]

BlogPodium: A Day Of Inspiration

I’ve been networking my butt off with four events in as many days. I am tired, but I am also so, so inspired. On Saturday, Mere and I joined a couple of hundred like-minded bloggers at BlogPodium, Canada’s very best conference for design and lifestyle bloggers. “Conference” sounds boring, right? Well, I think I must […]
