How do you update your 30 year old building to compete with all the new buildings being built around you?

Update your 30 year old building

Sometimes colour is all it takes. In this project the buildings were restored & completely covered with an elastomeric coating. We did a two-colour treatment with the overall colour being a warm neutral, but what really makes this project 'more than the sum of it's parts' is the treatment of the balconies in a dark grey.

Black accents such as lighting & street numbers make a connection to the black fencing that surrounds the complex. This is the final touch.

Mall interior 2013 welcoming colours

Bringing a fresh , new look to this mall interior was a lot of fun for us here at Colour Theory. We created a graphic mural to incorporate a range of accent colours and give the main space a lift. This mural engages the shopper as it has movement all itís own.

The main colour, or background, brings warmth and sophistication to the overall look. To complete the project ,with the ceiling painted sprout green and the ductwork pale aqua, it lends a bit of fantasy to the experience of being in the space.

In retail itís very important to change and grow as trends do . This is an example of the simplest way to update a space

This run down bungalow on the Scarborough bluffs was brought back to life by Casserly-Ross . To prepare it for resale they completely gutted & re-invented the interior, keeping the mid century character of the original home. We were brought in to help with colours & finishes. Over a period of a few months this home came alive, and creates an idyllic setting with a huge property overlooking Lake Ontario...complete with the occassional deer siting! Not surprising it sold quickly.......
