The Dreamhouse Project | Modern Industrial Family Room

Shop the look: Our Modern Industrial Family Room

We’re just a few days away from Black Friday in the U.S.! Who am I kidding, it’s almost Black Friday here in Canada too (since our retailers have insisted on making it a thing), lol!  And as all of our inboxes fill up with flyers, deals & door crashers, we thought we’d share a little […]

Family room plans: One Room Challenge (Week 1)

It’s that time of year again!! And no, I’m not referring to the season where we “pumpkin spice all the things” (although here in Canada it is that too). I’m referring to the time of year where bloggers from all over get just the kick in the pants they need to roll up their sleeves, […]

Well we’ve made it into the finishing phase of the Dreamhouse and with so many projects on the go at the same time, we’re beginning to feel a little bit of blogger ADD. With the whole house to finish at once we’ve been having a hard time figuring how to document them all without having […]

Finding Light in the kindness of strangers | The Dreamhouse Project

Finding ‘light’ in the kindness of strangers…

It’s amazing how quickly karma can come back around. A couple of weeks ago we introduced the concept of Random Acts of Paint as a way of paying it forward. I’m a firm believer that if we all made an effort once in a while to do something nice for someone else there’d be a […]

It’s Thursday again already and I have no idea where the week went!  Not that I’m complaining. Any time I wake up and realize it’s almost the weekend is a victory in my book!  But I digress… As you’ve probably noticed, the blogosphere has been all a buzz with recaps & highlights from the IDS 2014 […]
