Painting the Town Blue: Toronto Homes Embrace Benjamin Moore's 2024 Color of the Year

Best paint of 2024 Toronto

Hey there, Toronto homeowners! It's Bosco here from Toronto Painting Service, your trusted interior and exterior painting contractor for over [Number] years. As a seasoned professional, I've seen all sorts of colour trends come and go, but lately, there's been a surge in interest for one particular hue: blue.

And that brings me to some exciting news! Benjamin Moore, a trusted name in the paint industry, just announced their Color of the Year for 2024 – Blue Nova 825. Now, this isn't your average blue. Blue Nova 825 is a captivating blend of blue and violet, a vibrant color that evokes a sense of intrigue and possibility. It's no wonder it's captured the hearts (and design palettes) of homeowners across North America, and here in Toronto, it's definitely generating a buzz.

Why Blue Nova 825 is a Perfect Fit for Toronto Homes

But what makes Blue Nova 825 such a great choice for Toronto homes specifically? Here are a few reasons:

  • Versatility for Toronto's Ever-Changing Light:  Toronto's natural light can be a fickle beast. It can be bright and crisp one day, then soft and muted the next. Thankfully, Blue Nova 825 holds its own beautifully under various lighting conditions. In bright, natural light, the blue tones come alive, creating a refreshing and airy feel. Under softer light, the violet undertones emerge, lending a touch of warmth and intimacy. This versatility makes it a great choice for any room in your house, from sun-drenched living rooms to cozy bedrooms.

  • Adaptable Ambiance:  The beauty of Blue Nova 825 lies in its ability to create different moods depending on how you use it. Feeling stressed after a long day? A feature wall in Blue Nova in your bedroom can instantly create a calming and serene atmosphere. Entertaining friends? Painting your living room in this captivating shade can set an energetic and vibrant tone.

  • Complements Diverse Design Styles:  One of the biggest concerns homeowners have when choosing a bold colour is whether it will clash with their existing decor. The good news is, Blue Nova 825 is a surprisingly versatile hue. Its unique blend of blue and violet allows it to complement a wide range of design styles. Thinking of a modern minimalist makeover? Blue Nova can add a touch of sophisticated colour without overwhelming the clean lines. Going for a more classic traditional look? This shade can add a touch of unexpected elegance alongside rich wood tones and timeless furniture.

Pro Tip from Your Friendly Toronto Painter: Before you dive headfirst into painting your entire house Blue Nova, remember – professional advice is always a good idea! As a painting contractor who's worked with countless shades of blue, I've seen the transformative power of colour, but I've also witnessed the pitfalls of impulsive colour choices. Here are some things to consider before committing to Blue Nova:

Before You Dive into Blue Nova: Expert Tips from Toronto Painting Service

  • Consider Existing Decor and Lighting:  Don't underestimate the impact of your existing furniture and lighting on how a colour will appear in your space. For example, if you have a lot of warm-toned wood furniture, a cool blue like Nova might feel a bit stark. Similarly, the amount of natural light a room receives can drastically affect how the color reads. This is where a professional painting contractor can be invaluable. We can help you visualize how Blue Nova will look in your specific space, taking into account all the existing elements. (At Toronto Painting Service, we offer free consultations – no pressure, just expert advice!)

  • Sample, Sample, Sample!  This might seem obvious, but it's worth repeating. Don't rely solely on paint swatches or online pictures. Head down to your local paint store and pick up a few samples of Blue Nova. Here's a trick I always recommend to my clients: paint large swatches of the colour on poster board and move them around the room at different times of the day. This will give you a much better sense of how the colour interacts with the natural and artificial light in your space.

  • Don't Forget the Finish!  The finish you choose for your paint can significantly impact the overall look and feel of the colour. For example, a matte finish will create a more subdued look, while a satin finish will add a slight sheen and enhance the vibrancy of the colour. Here at Toronto Painting Service, we can guide you through the different paint finishes available and help you choose the one that best suits your vision and the specific application (walls, trim, etc.).

Inspiring Blue Nova Applications for Your Toronto Home

Now that you've considered the key factors and have a better understanding of Blue Nova's versatility, let's explore some inspiring ways to incorporate this captivating color into your Toronto home:

Feature Walls: A Dramatic Statement

If you're looking to make a bold statement, consider using Blue Nova as a feature wall. This is a fantastic option for living rooms, dining rooms, or even hallways.  Imagine walking into your living room and being greeted by a stunning Blue Nova accent wall – it's sure to become a conversation starter!

Here are some tips for creating a showstopping Blue Nova feature wall:

  • Choose the Right Wall:  The best wall for your feature is typically the one that naturally draws the eye when you enter the room.  For example, in a living room, this could be the wall behind your sofa.

  • Balance is Key:  While Blue Nova is undoubtedly gorgeous, it's a bold colour.  To prevent the room from feeling overwhelming,  balance the feature wall with neutral tones on the remaining walls.  Crisp white, light gray, or even a warm beige can create a beautiful contrast and allow the Blue Nova to shine.

  • Accessorize with Intention: When decorating your Blue Nova feature wall,  choose accents that complement the colour scheme.  Metallics like silver or gold can add a touch of sophistication, while pops of white or cream can provide a touch of lightness.

Personal Story Time:  I recently helped a client transform their rather bland living room with a Blue Nova feature wall.  They were hesitant at first, worried it might be too much colour.  But after we painted a large sample and helped them visualize the finished look, they were sold!  The end result was stunning – a vibrant and inviting space that perfectly reflected their personalities.

Accent Walls: A Touch of Sophistication

Don't feel like committing to a full-blown feature wall? No problem! Blue Nova can also be used to create stunning accent walls. This is a fantastic way to add a pop of colour and personality to a room without overwhelming the space.

Here are some ideas for incorporating Blue Nova as an accent wall:

  • Highlight Architectural Details:  Does your living room have a beautiful fireplace or a built-in bookshelf?  Painting these elements in Blue Nova can instantly elevate their visual presence and create a focal point in the room.

  • Define a Dining Area: Open-concept living is popular in Toronto homes, but it can sometimes feel like everything blends together.  Painting one wall in the dining area with Blue Nova can help visually define the space and create a more intimate atmosphere.

  • Add Drama to a Powder Room: Powder rooms are small spaces that can be a lot of fun to experiment with colour.  A bold Blue Nova accent wall in your powder room can create a truly unique and unforgettable experience for your guests.

Pro Tip: When choosing an accent wall colour, consider the size and layout of the room.  For smaller rooms, a lighter shade of blue might be more suitable to avoid making the space feel cramped.

Beyond the Walls: Exploring Blue Nova's Versatility

While Blue Nova shines on walls, its potential doesn't stop there. Here are some additional ways to incorporate this captivating colour into your Toronto home:

  • Front Door Refresh:  Give your home's exterior a fresh and inviting look with a coat of Blue Nova on your front door.  This is a simple yet impactful way to add personality and curb appeal to your Toronto abode.

  • Bold Kitchen Cabinets:  Feeling adventurous?  Consider painting your kitchen cabinets in Blue Nova.  This can create a truly unique and stylish kitchen that's sure to be the envy of the neighbourhood.  Just remember, for high-traffic areas like kitchens, using a durable and easy-to-clean paint is essential. (At Toronto Painting Service, we only use top-quality paints from Benjamin Moore and other trusted brands).

  • Furniture Revamp:  Have a tired-looking dresser or an old side table gathering dust in the corner? Give it a new lease on life with a fresh coat of Blue Nova! This is a budget-friendly way to add a pop of colour to your decor and update the look of your furniture.
