Interior Design with Decor-Rest & Para Paints

I have always loved interior design since I was a kid -maybe because my dad is a designer…

I loved helping my him pick paint colors and I loved furniture shopping. So last week when I attended Decor-Rest & Para Paints upcoming trends event I was so excited!

The Canadian manufacturer, Decor-Rest is located in Woodbridge and trust me, it is worth the drive. They have one of the biggest showrooms (for industry trades, retailers and registered interior designers) I have ever seen and some of the most beautiful mirrors, tables and fabrics.  I learned that the 2013 forecasted color trends are Blue,Teal and Navy together -very Greek island style- Green and Chartreuse, Purple and Violet (always popular) and pops of Orange and Yellow.


Some of the interior design trends that I came across are mixing and matching old with new,  adding pops of color and texture as well as trying to tell a story about who you are through the decor in your home.


I have always been a fan of hanging up random pictures and art work that means something to me. I also like mixing colors and texture and as Toronto is getting so cold and grey it’s nice to have some cheery pops of color in your home.
