LIVING WITH COLOUR IN THE HOME - A Bloggers Event with Decor-Rest and Para Paint....

Last week I attended an event "Living with Colour in the Home",  hosted by Decor-Rest Furniture, along with a presentation from Para Paint,  This event was directed to those of us who blog on the topics related to home, trends, colour, furniture, DIY.

Para rolled out their Colour Forecast for 2013 which has not been launched in stores yet which was great to see.  From what they presented, 2013 will be the year of much colour.  There will still be neutrals to pair with all of this rich and saturated colour.  Para is also introducing a new tool which will assist designers & decorators when displaying a colour group to clients.  Looking forward to this  It should be available in the new year.  The main colour groups presented as those for 2013 were blues, greens, purple, and golden. We will see references to the Art Deco period with colour, graphics, chevron, diamond pattern and a lot of texture.

The portion of the evening dedicated to 'blogging' touched on how important is has become as an inspiration for people looking for new ideas and what is trending.  In reading other blogs I find a great deal of information on all topics.  This  has become a great way to share, educate and just enjoy what others have to say.

After enjoying a lovely dinner, prizes and giveaways we toured the gorgeous showroom at Decor-Rest and got tons of inspiration for the next projects we undertake.

Decor-Rest features Cobi Style which is vibrant with colour and is very fun as well as Steven and Chris which is more masculine and subdued in colour and style, two distinctly different looks but they can work together.
Here is a few photos of their wonderful furniture.
