Pacific Northwest
Colour by Region

Layered in mist, the Pacific Northwest landscape conjures up mountains, lakes, trees and rocky ocean views—all of which add up to a stunning colour palette.

The gray skies of the Pacific Northwest create a moody backdrop for the region’s colour palette, which offers a playful range of mid-tone and modern neutral paint colours—the perfect hues for verdant forests and dramatic gray-blue coastlines.

Paint Colours of the Pacific Northwest

Living spaces in this dramatic region, in both colour and design, tend to synch with its majestic landscape.

Heavily wooded pine forests, beautiful lakes and inlets, and the distant snow-capped peaks of the Cascade Mountain are reflected in the hues within our Pacific Northwest paint colour palette.

A dark gray kitchen island, sleek side-table, metallic surfaces, and a side door painted in Black 2132-10 add depth and dimension to this breezy, open kitchen space. Jute AF-80, from our mix-and-match Affinity Colour Collection—and one of our favourite neutral paint hues—serves as a versatile backdrop for bolder colours.

Perk Up a Room with Bold Accent Colours

Adding a pop of bright colour to any room is always a good idea, but even more so given the typically cloudy skies of the Pacific Northwest. In the case of this cozy kitchen, soft Gray Owl OC-52-coloured cabinets are livened up with a Marblehead Gold HC-11-painted door and a Caribbean Blue Water 2055-30 kitchen island. Anjou Pear AF-425 and Raspberry Blush 2008-30 are also great hues to energize Pacific Northwest interiors.

Given the region’s natural bounty, greens are a favourite colour choice for the Pacific Northwest, from living rooms in earthy Great Barrington Green HC-122 to accent furniture in cheery Cedar Green 2034-40.
