The Colors of Nova Scotia

May 31st, 2015 | Paint, Review

If you have never visited Nova Scotia you really must come, I’m so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. The county I live in is coined for the world’s highest tidesAcadia University, and most importantly it is the agricultural heartland of the province.  If you have no idea where I’m talking about, Nova Scotia is the small whale shaped (some say lobster) province sticking off the east coast of Canada.

Nova Scotia is so diverse there is really something for everyone to see and do. Because of the beautiful landscapes, agricultural towns, and coastal properties, we have such a constantly changing colour palette throughout the seasons.  For those of you that haven’t traveled east, or have, and just want to drink up all the colors of Nova Scotia,  PPG Voice of Color Regional Collection showcases the colors that tell our story.

Beautiful collection eh?  So many colors remind me of my surroundings, even the names are suiting, like Bay of Fundy, and Northern Landscape.  I just can’t choose a favourite!

These images are a breath into how the landscapes, villages and people bring this color palette to life. Using these colors in your home will create a space that is warm and inviting, much like Nova Scotia.

Isn’t Luckett Vineyards overlooking Blomidon, breath taking?

A big thanks to my friend Brian for allowing me to share what he captures through the lens. He is an amazing photographer, I’m always eager to see what angle he is taking next. Follow him on Instagram @brian_g_taylor .

Even in the winter the bright pops of red and blue are eye catching.

Inspired by these cute cottages, I’ve put together a few of the colors from the regional collection I would love to use in my home.

Color Palette from PPG Voice of Color regional collection

Gypsum | Canary Yellow | Rustic Pottery | Palmetto | Dark Ash

I think I feel my little guys new bedroom color scheme coming together. I love the rustic tones with the pop of yellow.

Bay of Fundy | Pineapple Delight | Lime Taffy | Rose Petal | Biscay Bay

Isn’t this color combination perfect for summer, bright and fun but not too loud.

What do you think of the PPG Voice of Color Nova Scotia Regional Collection, did any colors jump out at you?

I’ll be choosing a color for our cottage (below) front door, I’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments.
