This year, we were proud to partner once again with PARA Paints as the Title Sponsor of BlogPodium 2014. PARA Paints continues to be at the forefront of working creatively and collaboratively with bloggers.
PARA has recently announced its 2015 PARA Blog Crew members. These bloggers will showcase colour trends, techniques and inspiring approaches to design with PARA’s products, drawing from over a century of colour expertise. The 2015 PARA Blog Crew projects will be featured throughout the year in PARA’s social media channels and website at www.PARA.com. Each member of the 2015 PARA Blog Crew will receive access to PARA paint for one year, a stipend for paint supplies and a designer-exclusive architecture kit. Congratulations to these bloggers – we can’t wait to see your painting projects!
