The colours of Canada

Beauti-Tone is celebrating Canada’s 150 th anniversary of Confederation in colourful style with the launch of the National Parks of Canada Colour Collection.

“As part of Home Hardware, one of Canada’s most admired companies, we wanted to celebrate Canada’s 15 th in a way that would be both meaningful and colourful,” said Bev Bell, creative director, Beauti-Tone Paint and Home Products Division. “Since nature is the very best colourist, we quickly realized the vibrant colours our beautiful and varied Canadian landscape has gifted us would create a perfectly colourful anniversary homage.”

Beauti-Tone was honoured to become proud partners with Parks Canada. Armed with colour-matching tools and a Canada 150 Discovery Pass, the Beauti-Tone team scoured Canada’s national parks capturing the beautiful colours they saw in order to create a collection of colours inspired by the beauty of our land, and perfect for our homes. The result: Forty-seven nature-inspired hues, one for each of Canada’s 46 national parks and one national urban park.

“The Beauti-Tone team was truly awed by the beauty we experienced; mountains to plains, lakes to glaciers, and coast to coast to coast,” said Bell. “We are hoping this colour collection will not only help fellow Canadians find colour inspiration for their homes, but will also encourage them to enjoy first-hand the natural beauty and true colours Canadian National Parks have to offer.”

The Beauti-Tone National Parks of Canada Colour Collection colour card is divided into six geographically inspired palettes: Beyond the Prairies, Coastal Character, Fireside Warmth, True North, Range of Hues and The Night Sky. Each palette includes colour inspiration and room images, and many include additional interactive content, including sights and sounds from our beautiful national parks, attainable through the layar app.

Each of the forty-seven colours in the National Parks of Canada Colour Collection is inspired by one of Canada’s National Parks. For example, Patriot Love, was inspired by the beautiful changing colours of the maple leaf in Rouge National Urban Park and creates a dynamic focus wall in this chic multi-level condo.
