10 Colours to Blossom Your Love Affair With Your Home

Have you ever spent a weekend, full of excited anticipation as you paint a room in your home, only to look at the end result and say, “AARG!” To help turn that AARG into an AHHH, Beauti-Tone Paint has identified Colours that WORK, ten beautiful shades that will ALWAYS look great, no matter what!

Colour affects us mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Now that we are staying closer to home, creating a space that you feel wonderful and peaceful in is more important than ever. While for most of us, peace and joy starts with a fresh coat of paint, choosing a colour that you’ll love and that really works can mean the difference between boom and bust!

So how do we do that? It is imperative to choose shades that will give us a healthy glow instead of leaving us feeling chilled to the bone. Yellow can be a warm, happy colour. However, choose the wrong shade of liquid sunshine and your walls could move right past ‘warm glow’ straight to ‘positively blinding!’ The perfect yellow feels as good as that spring day when the sun warms your bare shoulders and you know winter is a thing of the past. Beauti-Tone’s ‘Love is Blonde DR98-0 is a ‘go to’ shade of yellow with green undertones. A colour that is flawless and true.

If the colour pink makes you feel downright tickled, you’ll will want to choose a shade that gives you the warm promise of a colour-hazed sunrise instead of the sticky yuck of stepping in bubble gum. Beauti-Tone’s So In Love DR66-0 is a perfectly pretty shade of pink that leaves you saying, sweet!

With Colours that WORK, Home Hardware’s Beauti-Tone Paint Division has done the homework for you, identifying exactly what works and what decidedly does not. When it comes to home décor, these colours are the best of the best blue, red, green, grey, taupe, pink, yellow and even white. Perhaps best of all, Colours that WORK will not only look great now, but they’ll also stand the test of time. These are not ‘trendy’ colours, but instead are fashionable colours, classics you won’t grow tired of.


MAKING WAVES
DR122-0


This is the colour of your favorite pair of faded jeans. That pair that miraculously seems to fit just right, no matter what you had for dessert. Making Waves is an energetic attention seeker. You can dress it up or dress it down – it’s simply perfect.

SO IN LOVE
DR66-0

SEDUCTIVE
