New Fall Colours For Your Home
Published November 25, 2015
November is a popular month for paint manufacturers to release their fall line-up.
This year there appears to be a trend toward calming colours. Think of warm, down-to-earth brown tones and soft beachside hues. Natural bright colours and soft pastels are also popular. The cold weather tends to put homeowners in a cocooning mode. This means consumers like to surround themselves with comforting colours that bring a sense of serenity to their homes. Beauti-Tone, a division of Home Hardware Stores Ltd., has teamed up with Canadian fashion designer and style expert Simon Chang to develop a palette of paint colours this fall that includes autumn colours in earthy tones similar to fall fashion. His Simon Chang Model Home Trend Colour Collection from Beauti-Tone offers rejuvenating tones that promise to inspire Canadians to inject the fall colours they love in their wardrobes into their homes.
Look for Botanic Beauti, a beautiful botanical green that evokes images of the outdoors. Exotic Marigold is a warm and optimistic orange that won’t overpower the room.
If you love neutrals and a minimal look then Wishful Thinking is for you – perfect for a playful space or a cottage-style wall.
CIL paints have also released a palette of warm colours for the fall. There appears to be a movement away from greys, blacks and acidic bright tones that have been popular in past years. The trend is toward warmer hues that deliver a more modern and livable colour scheme within the home.
Swiss Coffee will be popular with pale cream lovers and Lily Pond will surely please those that crave pastel green in their homes.
Don’t be surprised to see pops of bright colour on feature walls. CIL’s Chemise Pink, a soft pale pink, is their paint colour of the year. It’s a soft blush pink that you will see in furnishings, accessories and on walls within the home. This colour and other colours will work well with the soft shades of green and pale browns.
CIL believes there is a relaxing vibe to their new palette.
These colours should co-ordinate well with soft and delicate finishes within the home. However at the same time the palette has the flexibility to be big and bold with deep accent tones that will add a sense of depth and sophistication to any living space. Simon Chang Model Home Trend Colour Collection of Beauti-Tone paints is available at Home Hardware, Home Building Centre and Home Hardware Building Centre locations across Canada. CIL Paints are available at The Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, Rona and other independent paint dealers.
