Beauti-Tone suggests using restful colour to create a blissful cocoon
 
Burford, ON (November 3, 2015) – Beauti-Tone, a division of Home Hardware Stores Ltd., along with noted Canadian fashion designer and style expert Simon Chang, are inspiring Canadians to make the most of November by using beautiful colour to create indoor spaces that help us reenergize and stay positive until we can throw open our doors and windows once again. 
 
“Just as in nature, when trees shake off their leaves and animals seek out a cozy place to hibernate, November is the month when many Canadians go into cocooning mode,” says Bev Bell, Creative Director, Beauti-Tone Paint and Home Products Division, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “It’s the perfect month to make our home a beautiful place of calming colours to help us rest and rejuvenate.”
 
For many of us, our favourite thing about autumn is wrapping ourselves up in earthy coloured fashions. The same feeling translates to our home. Simon Chang, through his Simon Chang Model Home Trend Colour Collection from Beauti-Tone, has selected a palette of colours for the home that are grounded in nature and perfect to wrap ourselves up in over the colder months. “Botanic Beauti, as seen in this living room accent wall, is a beautiful botanical green that makes you think of the outdoors, and a time when everything will be alive again,” says Chang. 
 
“Exotic Marigold is a beautifully warm and optimistic orange, not overpowering at all,” he adds. For spaces that bring total tranquility, try a relaxed cream colour like Style Achiever for a spa-type setting like the one in this bathroom or use a down-to-earth white like Wishful Thinking for a playful space like this intriguing cottage-style wall. 
 
November is also a great time to have some fun with adding colour to unexpected places adds Bell. “I painted the underside of my dining room table and added a fun message for my grandchildren, who gravitate to the space during family dinners.” Bell also encourages us to use colours we love in places just for us, like the inside of a drawer or closet. “It’s a great way to bring a sense of happiness whenever we happen to see it,” she says.
 
The key, adds Bell, is to use this time, after the leaves fall and before the snow flies and the holidays overtake our lives, to make our surroundings just right for us. “That is the perfect fall gift we can give to ourselves.”
