BURFORD, ON 2013-02-20

Home Hardware Stores Limited's Beauti-Tone Paint Division is offering 14 paint shades that pay tribute to the power of neutrals.

"A great neutral is your BFF for home decor," says Bev Bell, creative director, Beauti-Tone Paint and Home Products Division. "They are incredibly versatile, inspiring looks that are luxe and sophisticated, or casual and cozy." However, she points out that understanding undertones (warm versus cool) is the key to picking the perfect neutral. 

Beauti-Tone's power neutrals, with their undertones, are:


  • White Smile (SC080) from the Simon Chang Colour Collection - Undertone: warm from a "whisper of yellow"
  • Tennis Whites (FD018) - Undertone: Yellow (warm)
  • Hotel Ware (FD046) - Undertone: Grey (cool)


  • Nickel Black (SC075) - Undertone: Pure black softened by grey.
  • Thunder Grey (SC072) - Undertone: Saturated true grey with a warm undertone learning toward red.
  • Flannel (CD026) - Undertone: Cool, mid-tone grey with blue undertone.
  • Distinctive (CD010) - Undertone: Warm grey with yellow undertone.
  • Natural Beauti (SC081): Pure taupe perfectly balanced between grey and brown.
  • Set the Mood (SC076) - Undertone: Yellow (warm)
  •  Chocolate (SD020) - Undertone: Black influences (warm)
  • Still Life (ND040) - Undertone: Mid-tone beige with warm undertones from green.
  • Fieldstone (HD045) - Undertone: Light, well-balanced beige with green undertone.
  • Field of Dreams (SC080) - Delicate shade of yellow with green undertone.
  • Directoire (CD003) - Subtle moss green with grey undertone.
 "We've done the homework in terms of undertones for these colours, but remember, most colour schemes work best when the undertone is carried throughout the space," says Bell.
