New Models and Paint Colour Schemes that work!
Although not everyone may have had the chance to visit the two new model homes built by Kylemore Communities in Markham, Ontario, I wanted to publish the list of colours used, as they are some of my favorites and they may provide you with a great palette for your own home.
By the way, if you do want to see these houses they are located on Angus Glen Blvd, south of Major Mackenzie Drive, Markham, Ontario. You can also visit their website for more information. Stay tuned as pictures are coming!
(All paint colours are Benjamin Moore. Pick up samples at your neighbourhood retailer.)
The Neutral Palette
This is a wonderful colour palette if you want to maintain a neutral beige feel without an orange undertone.
This collection of paint colours have depth, punch and are not bland when used together through the main floor of a house. In west facing spaces, where the light is very warm-toned they will not change to “amber/orange/peach”, rather they will show more towards gray. Its this quality of the collection that makes it very versatile, sophisticated and livable for a long time to come.
Apply these colours in the locations I have listed below for the best impact and flow throughout your own home:
- Foyer Walls: Bennington Beige HC-83
- Hallway Walls: Grant Beige HC-83
- Family Room: Greenbrier Beige HC-79
- Den: Mount St. Anne CC-710
- Dining Room: Branchport Brown HC-72
- Trim and Doors: Dune White CC-70
This is a very different palette from what we have seen in the marketplace over the last ten years. It is still neutral but much cooler overall, utilizing gray as the main colour direction.
- Walls Throughout Main Floor: Barren Plain 2111-60
- Dining Room Ceiling: Kendall Charcoal HC-166
- Den Walls: Stone Harbour 2111-50
- Powder Room Walls: Twilight Zone 2127-10
- Interior side of Front Door: Twilight Zone 2127-10
- All other Trim and Doors: Decorators White CC-20
