The Palette Project #3: Alexander Keith’s
This is another edition of our Palette Project– we’re exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful.
Beer has long been a part of the Canadian identity, going back to the first European settlers. Nestled near the waterfront in Halifax, NS is the original location of Alexander Keith’s that was originally built in 1820. Over time this handsome brick building has been transformed into a flagship store and historic pub (don’t worry it still brews some great small batch beer). The building itself is enclosed in a glass atrium creating a great space to reflect on the history of Halifax and breathe in 200 years worth of hoppy aromas. Cheers Mr. Keith!
Inspired by the signage in the brewery courtyard, these colours are traditional, rich, and work well with natural materials like leathers and woods. In this palette there is a balance of light and dark as well as saturated and neutral tones. We love how the colours of the sign can also be found in the multi-toned bricks and the reflection of the windows. This palette evokes feelings of coziness and warmth that are fit for any room in your home or your favourite bar…
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!
