The Palette Project #20: Maligne Lake
This is another edition of the palette project– we’re exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful.
This week we travel to the heart of the Rocky Mountains to Maligne Lake. Nestled in the Queen Elizabeth Ranges, it reaches over 22km long– providing breathtaking vistas of both the lake and the seemingly endless mountain ranges. Classic Canadian mountains at their best! Our inspiration photo was taken from the Bald Hills hiking trail, looking along the lake. Not pictured? Dozen of happy hikers enjoying the natural beauty of the Rockies.
Talk about bringing the outdoors in… to embrace the natural beauty of the Rockies and Maligne Lake, we decided on a natural palette (no neon pinks and electric blues here!). Though there are a huge range of colours in our inspiration, from the dramatic and deep to the light and airy, we chose a middle ground of neutral, tranquil, and ultra-natural. These colours can be matched to paint chips, textiles, counters, flooring, you name it! We deliberately mixed warm and cool tones, making sure that no colour was over-saturated to maintain overall balance.
Next Sunday we’ll have new inspiration and new colours to share with you! Each of these palettes is created by Designers Collective. We encourage you to use them for inspiration!
