On Saturday Canada turns 150 years old so I thought it would be fun to highlight some of Home Hardware’s National Parks of Canada Colour Collection, and maybe you’ll be inspired to use some of them in your home.
They make great seconday colours – think about your front door, an accent wall, small painted pieces of wood furniture. But click through some of the links for even more inspiration. Sooo many of them work well with grey, brown, and natural stone, and look fantastic on painted exteriors.
Colours inspired from mountains to plains, lakes to glaciers, coast to coast, we discovered an infinite variety of natural beauty to build a palette that works for the home.
I love that there’s lots of soft, tranquil colours (like Grey Seal, Great Blue Heron, and Inuvialuktun) but also a few rich tones (like Patriot Love, Pitcher Plant, and Lapis Lakes). They’ve paired each colour to a national park, and when you click on the swatch you get to see the natural inspiration for the colour, along with a room making use of it.
There’s a few projects on the Home Hardware site to get you inspired working with the palette – like using various greys and browns to create a simple, graphic mountain landscape; or colour blocking to create a focal point above a bed when there’s no headboard.
And if you’re looking for even more inspiration, I’ve put together a few of the colours with a few of my photographs to create Canadian paint colour combinations based on nature…
