Bye, bye, beige … bold and beautiful house colours
A joint project of Fredericton Heritage Trust, Inc. and ProCraft Paint & Décor
This project will appeal to all private home owners in the Fredericton area. Houses may be old or new, small or large, northside or southside, and builds on recent positive comments about a growing number of owners repainting their houses with interesting colour combinations.
The Trust and ProCraft believe in the use of multiple – and even vibrant house colours to accentuate architectural details and create more vibrant streetscapes. To encourage participation, a 20% discount will apply to paint and paint application tools to owners who register for the program with ProCraft.
Some examples of Fredericton's imaginative house colour schemes:
