    I don’t think I could pick one country that I decorate my home like. Maybe it’s like a combination of Canada/US, Scandinavia and England. Homey with warm colors, furniture from lots of different decades and lots of different textures. That’s the best way I can describe it. lol =)

  • Reply Michelle February 16, 2014 at 2:54 PM

    Definitely Canada! Had a lot of leaks this winter due to melting ice. I would love to win this paint so I could repaint the walls and cover over all those ugly watermarks!
