The Great Accent Wall Debate

For anyone who’s been waiting for an update on my paint paralysis, here’s a sneak peek at the accent wall I painted in our bedroom on the weekend: It’s a deep, deep brown called Blackfoot Trail by Para Paints.* I wanted something dark and dramatic to minimize contrast with the headboard so that the whole […]

Decking Out The Yard Chez Newb

Hey there! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. Sue is getting the kids back at school today and my little guy is starting pre-school tomorrow. Yikes — the summer months flew by. At least we have this fabulous summer weather to keep us in a relaxed state of mind. (Right? ) To […]

The Gift of Time + Paint Progress

We’ve gotten the cabinets and appliances installed & the electrical completed, but we’re taking our time (i.e. relaxing over the holidays & enjoying our family time!) finishing everything up. But one easy thing we can do is make a decision on backsplash tile. There […]

Chez Nous: A Tale Of Three Bedrooms

First, a big thank you to Mere for holding down the blog this week. While she was pounding out blog posts and knocking down walls in her kitchen, I was in Toronto at our Decorating Den Interiors regional meeting and had the chance to tour many of our preferred supplier showrooms. I am so inspired and […]

I wanted to share the mood boards behind my Para Paints kitchen inspiration colours. Slow & Steady Wins the Race…Sigh. Our kitchen update is progressing […]
