Interior Design Advice – How to Incorporate the 2017 Colour of the Year


1 minute read

As we approach spring, I can’t help but reflect on the colour forecast for 2017. This year, Pantone’s colour ‘Greenery’ was chosen for the ‘it’ colour; this means you will see it popping up in home décor, consumer products, and even automobiles. Greenery is a very vibrant, granny smith apple, yellow-based green. A very bold addition to any space, this colour is probably best used in small doses as it is not for the faint of heart.
How can you incorporate this fun springy pop of colour into your space? My first instinct is to tell you to introduce this with accessories and interchangeable items around your home. Since this is a trendy colour, I wouldn’t suggest adding it in permanent installations (for example a bold lime green tile backsplash might not be the best choice because even if you initially love it, you might grow tired of it over time). If you are stumped on how to incorporate this invigorating colour into your home, stop by & see the ladies at Rave Designs- they have a ton of fun accessories in store, and have even more selection available by order. Stop by our showroom and then swing into Rave for some extra inspiration- your custom decor will leave your friends green with envy!

Family math nights add up to success

Published on

In an effort to build an understanding of teaching math both at school and in the home, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools is pleased to provide Family Math Nights.

These school-specific evenings first begin with an information session, and end with interactive stations for families to explore, all centred around developing understanding of concepts versus memorization skills. These sessions provide an opportunity to engage in math with a hands-on approach and ask questions to our numeracy experts.

Feedback from parents at other schools has shown that these Family Math Nights have a positive impact on student success.

Please note the upcoming Family Math Nights:

  • St. Teresa of Avila School (Grades 1-3) – January 18 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Holy Family School (Grades 1-5) – February 1 at 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
