HGTV Summer Décor Ideas Thanks to Sarah 101

When people think of Canadian interior design, I’m sure their first thought is of Sarah Richardson.

HGTV on television or online is the perfect way to spend those rainy summer days (and nights)—and those that are too hot to spend in the sun. I often feel the urge to change my décor seasonally, yet I don’t want to pay a lot each time to do so. Sarah 101 is in its 2nd season, which started a few weeks ago, and has a ton of fresh ideas for sprucing up your décor.

Each week, on Sarah 101, Sarah Richardson picks out Para Paint colours to suit the look of the room. The most recent episode (1 of 2 double episodes that were on) was a makeover of a Dual Purpose Den. I used Para Paint to redecorate my mom’s living room and kitchen and was really pleased with the way it turned out.
