Green Peace - Beauti-Tone's 2018 Colour of the Year

Beauti-Tone's 2018 Colour of the Year

The calm we are craving

Burford, ON – Beauti-Tone, a division of Home Hardware Stores Limited, has announced its 2018 colour-of-the-year, the very soul nurturing, energy fortifying Green Peace, from the Simon Chang, Model Home ‘Trend Colour Collection’. 
 
“For Beauti-Tone, the colour-of-the-year is not something we choose,” says Bev Bell, Creative Director, Beauti-Tone Paint and Home Products Division, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “Rather it, like all meaningful colour, evolves from what is happening in our lives and in the lives around us.” Right now, whether it is within our own walls or in the bigger world, many of us are craving simple calm. “Green Peace is a soothing balancing colour with strong energy. When used in a room, people entering develop a sense of ease and peace,” adds Bell. “It quiets the noise and intensity of life and creates a gentle, nurturing space in which to replenish, restore and renew.”
 
A colour strongly rooted in nature, Green Peace is an interesting blend of an earthy camouflage green and a soft botanical green. “As humans, we crave nature. It is there that we slow down, feel connection—become stronger,” says Bell. However, since we can’t always get outside, the solution is to bring aspects of nature into our home to improve our well-being, productivity and creativity.
 
This is a colour that absolutely blossoms in bigger doses. “When I first saw it on a page I thought it was a pretty colour. Then when I put it on a wall I said, My God, it’s beautiful,” she says. So enamored was she that she painted her guestroom Green Peace. “Everyone tells me they sleep better in that room. So if you make that choice, be prepared for your guests to stay!”
 
Could this be THE new neutral? “Green Peace is an intriguing colour that can be a grounding and elegant neutral or it can make a confident statement,” says Bell. “Like nature, it is perfect harmony.”
