Colour Feature Sunday – Tan

The colour tan makes an excellent backdrop and for accompanying bright colours to appear richer and brighter.

Use tan to convey a feeling of warmth, honesty, and wholesomeness. Although found in nature year-round, golden brown is often considered a spring and fall colour. 
It is more casual than black, tan is dependable, conservative, and flexible. The attributes and meanings associated with tan change based on the colours it accompanies. Tan can give off a feeling of understated elegance. 


Additional words for fan would be buff, camel, oatmeal, sand, ecru, mushroom.

This paint colour featured is HC-37 Mystic Gold by Benjamin Moore

THE STORY

Century Paint is made by designers, this innovative paint comes in a curated collection of 75 colors with unprecedented depth. The complex blend of art and science creates a paint that stands in a category of its own. It is said to feel like soft leather on your wall.

Century is a new dimension in paint and design. Craftsmanship, precision and beauty have been the heart and soul of Benjamin Moore since 1883.

Century is more than paint; it’s an experience.

The artisan believes in precision. In keeping strict standards when not surpassing them. And more than anything… in stirring the senses.

Similar to a soft leather glove, the tactile experience of Century’s Soft Touch Matte Finish is not easily achieved.

Every can of Century is produced in the same Benjamin Moore workshop. And to guarantee true color, each can is delivered pre-mixed and sealed.

Years of research led to a unique resin and coloring system that created Soft Touch Matte Finish.

This innovative finish adds a tactile dimension to walls. It creates energy in the room and an unprecedented depth of color.

It’s both science and spectacle.

We love the mix of white walls and these earthy paint colours. Chocolates, warm grays + gold are rich and well balanced against white.

Nice and cozy for winter.

AF-715 Dolphin

fafcc1940a33b4351afe99e51e69ed04By now we all know that gray is the new black of home decor. It’s neutral, still warm without any yellow or orange undertones and is extremely calming. This warm gray AF-715 Dolphin is from Benjamin Moore’s Affinity Colour Collection and it is a classic.

This bathroom is stunning and the wall tile is the jumping off point, its where the wall colour came from and ties in the creamy counter tops.

These barn doors have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin, so much warmer than the traditional white doors.

We love how the lower cabinets and island in this open concept kitchen have been painted out in AF-715 Dolphin. Looks great with the white walls and warm hardwood floors.

It’s Golden.

Our love for golden shades in wallpaper are more than just their beauty, their reflective quality can make your space look larger. The light bounces off of these papers and adds the depth you may normally only get from a mirror or window.

Below are some prints we love and see remaining classic. Browse, enjoy and come look at our collection of wallpaper books in the store. Nothing transforms a room like wallpaper.

Believe it or not, but wallpaper is back like never before. New textures, modern colours, and bold designs have led to a wallpaper revival not just among homeowners but also with interior designers, architects and design buffs. But it is not just the aesthetic appeal of wallpaper, which has led to the increased interest in wallcovering, some of the other benefits include:

  • easy care – modern wallpapers are washable, durable and wear well
  • economical – today’s wallpapers have a lifespan 10+ years
  • colourfast – most wallpapers have the ability to resist change of loss of colour caused by exposure to light
  • quick installation – one coat of wallpaper is all you need
  • covers flaws in the wall surface that paint can’t
  • protects the wall surface
  • easy installation and replacement
