SICO PaintsSICO’s 2010-2011 palette is divided into four themes: Back to Basics, Free Expression. Classic Revival and Synthetic Culture. “Each of these themes emits emotional energy and optimism. Used on their own or merged together, the 2010-2011 colours reflect the diverse outlook of today’s consumers and deliver a refreshing change and renewed attitude on life,” says Stephanie Pélland of the Quebec-based paint company’s colour picks for the year.
Homespun shades such as plums, teals and red clay tones that conjure up images of rural living are well-suited to living and great rooms.
Unconventional colours like acidic yellows and ocean blues paired with mismatched patterns, furniture styles and fabrics might be well suited to a teen’s bedroom.
Classicism is back with a feminine nod inspired from needlework, appliqués and period furniture. Ash purples, bronzed greens and lacquer reds reflect a throwback to the past and work well in a master ensuite or dressing area.
