3. Classic Burgundy
Not for the feint of heart, CIL’s Classic Burgundy (09YR 05/305 R52) is a super-saturated hue that’s apparently struck a chord with Canadians coast to coast. The dark and dramatic paint colour would be ideally suited for a dining room, or any slightly formal space that’s often dressed to impress.
Fun fact: Compared to the rest of Canada, Manitobans tend to be cautious when it comes to bold colour. In a study of Canadian painting habits conducted by CIL, 75 per cent of the province’s respondents equated “neutrals with attractive, easy-to-live-with decor.”
