TORONTO — From coast to coast, Canadians prefer neutral colours for home decor, but residents of some provinces are more daring with colour than those of other provinces. That’s the finding of a countrywide survey of Canadian painting habits conducted by CIL paint.
According to the survey, which polled more than 1,500 consumers across the country, 51% of Canadians equate white, grey and beige with a beautiful and liveable colour palette for the home, while 36% think pastel colours such as yellow, blue or green are the better choice. Only 13% of respondents put rich colours such as red, black or purple in this category.
