Colour brightens a damp, gloomy Spring Day. The Camellia, Thunder Bay

Coastal waters

You get these days in Northern Ontario, where there is lots of grey and a damp mix of rain/slush/snow, and it seems like Spring will never come. The trees are pollinating, the grass is growing, and Robins are busy building nests in our trees. And all the Songbirds have returned. The only thing to do on days like these is to look at photos from your Tropical vacays, And put some colour on your Walls.... don't get carried away with the current Grey and Neutral craze. Try the #CottagePaint array of colours...did you know that #SerenityCottagePaint can go on walls?

On the left is Robin's egg blue, and on the right is Naples Blue. 

Green is a favourite of so many, Look at the play of Green against the whitewashed brick and that blue sky! I can feel the warmth of the sun that day, we are on the remains of an old Sugar Mill in Antigua. 

Bimini Cottage Paint, a bold choice, great for a piece of Furniture or as an accent in your Home. 

Naples Blue. 


Such an intricate structure, historically the Caribbean's main industry was Sugar production. 

Our favourite Reds in Cottage Paint include #CrimsonRed and #Medieval. Red can be counted on to add an extra dose of Drama to your space.
