"I am a first-year interior decorating student in pursuit of finding a lifelong career in the interior decorating/design field. I
plan on graduating from my program in the spring of 2017 and anticipate furthering my education in this vast strand of
study until then with the hopes of obtaining a position in this field sometime after graduation. Finding something I feel so
passionate about has been extremely rewarding to me and I feel very fortunate to be recognized for the work that I have
had the chance to produce. I am hoping to break into the decorating/design field during this year and thanks to you I am
one year closer" -Adrienne Caldwell, IDRC scholarship recipient student
Every naked room corner in a fun-sized abode is a space-making opportunity. Here's how to transform neglected nooks into useful and inviting spots that make life at home better.
Last January, Paris was the ideal stomping ground for some home decor inspiration thanks to the biannual Maison&Objet furniture fair — a major fixture on the international design calendar — and its satellite events across the city. The interior design community came back in full force to discover the creative world's latest brands and products.
As millennials upturn industries and attempt to claim the color pink, Martha Stewart says there's one way that the generation is contributing to the biggest change in home decor today.
"I think kids — when I say kids, I mean anybody from like 40 down — nobody wants a lot of stuff," Stewart told Business Insider at the launch event for her new line of craft paints and tools with Michaels.

First-time homebuyers aren't the only ones struggling due to the recent run-up in Toronto property prices — a new study shows that commercial property prices have experienced similar gains, putting small businesses sensitive to lease rate hikes at risk.
A recent City of Toronto study provided to The Globe and Mail looks at the assessed value of non-residential properties from 2012 to 2016 in the 84 business improvement areas (BIAs) across Toronto.
If you've ever relied on Pinterest to find home decor style ideas and thought "this must be true because it's on Pinterest," then professional interior designer Leslie Hart-Davidson from HDD Studios would like a stern word with you.
In the same way that hypochondriacs will search WebMD until they find a diagnosis of their innocent skin rash as flesh-eating bacteria, many "Problematic Pinners" will search Pinterest to shop for opinions to confirm that their original beliefs (like "beige is a colour" and "all neutrals are fun") are valid and perfect.
Home decor styles have changed over the ages. A few decades ago, classy and chic was the way to go, but current trends are anything but ordinary, with people looking for inspiration in the most unexpected places.
More than any other room in a house, the main bedroom is the one that provides the biggest insight into the dwelling's most senior occupants.
Unlike other areas — say, for example, the kitchen, dining or living rooms — bedrooms aren't primarily designed for show. They are places intended for privacy and relaxation.
Helping women achieve equal opportunities in the workplace could add $150 billion to Canada's GDP by 2026, according to a new report.
Canada doesn't fare too badly, in terms of gender equality, when compared to other countries, but forward momentum has stalled for the past 20 years, said McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), the business and economics research arm of international consultancy McKinsey & Company.
The 138-year old Union Club of British Columbia made history when it was declared a National Historic Site last month.
That honour coincided with another important moment — the completion of an extensive $4-million, five-year renovation and redecoration of the landmark Gordon Street building.
