PARA’s new palette

PARA Paints will be unveiling its new Colour Forecast Palette and ColourSquare Colour Coordinating Tool at this year’s Interior Design Show in Toronto. This vibrant and edgy palette offers Canadians the latest in colour trends and will act as a guide in directing a home’s complete decor scheme. Made up of 75 new colours, PARA’s Colour Forecast Palette enables customers to easily find the right colour combinations for walls, draperies, rugs and décor accessories. This will be available in all participating PARA retailers across Canada by the end of January.

“PARA’s new Forecast Palette and ColourSquare Colour Coordinating Tool is the perfect design solution for anyone looking to create a décor scheme that harmonizes colours together just like an expert,” says Garry Belfall, senior brand manager for PARA Paints. “With this, people will be able to use the in-store PARA display to help create an individual colour palette of cutting-edge, trend colours that have been professionally-matched with stylish neutrals, thus making the task of choosing colours easier, faster and more cohesive for the consumer.”

PARA’s Colour Forecast Palette has gone one step further than its competitors by providing timeless trend advice to its customers and offering 56 coordinating colour groupings in a “patchwork” formation that assists in selecting a trend palette right there in the store, complete with bright, bold hues and soft, complementary neutrals. PARA’s Colour Forecast Palette will provide customers with the largest take home colour samples in the industry.

Following current and future colour trends, the Forecast Palette features hues of mauve, lavender and nature (think tropical beach escapes) to peacock teals and sapphire seas; and contemporary accents of tangy oranges, and happy yellows. These 75 colours were selected to encourage creative energy and are complemented with neutrals of bleached translucent pastels, faded jeans and tactile earth tones for a coordinated look in any room.
