Chez Newb: Living Room Paint Colour

I’m at it again. I just can’t stop painting. Mostly it’s because PARA Paints chose us to be part of their Blog Crew and well, it was free paint for a year! Talk about motivation for changing up the colours of your house. And change I have. This year I’ve painted the shed, the mudroom, […]

Get This Look: Show Your Shelves Some Love

  Repeat after me: bookcases are not just for books. I really think shelving is something that can give an otherwise ok space that extra something.

A Pillow For All Seasons

  Confession:  I have so many extra decorating accessories that I need a shelving unit in my basement storage area to house them all.  If I feel like mixing things up or need a certain something to complete a room, the first place I “shop” is in my own home.

The course was “Colour in Décor”, and most of our assignments involved mixing paint to create our own paint chips to match the colour scheme from a magazine photo. Harder than it sounds, I tell you! It was frustrating and time consuming, […]
