Colorbond Colours Explained

Aussies love Colorbond and it’s easy to see why. It’s a homegrown product, designed to stand up under the harsh Australian environment and look good at the same time. The beautiful thing about Colorbond is that not only is it designed to survive the Australian environment, its colours are also inspired by the environment.

We are blessed with some of the most vivid and colourful landscapes in the world. From the ochre of the desert to the blue of the sea and the green of our lush rainforests we are literally surrounded by colour. Colourbond steel noticed these colours and decided to create a range of Colorbond colours that reflected the beauty surrounding us.

That’s why you can look at each of the Colorbond colours and feel the inspiration behind them. You can literally use Colorbond colour scheme to make your own landscape.

 

For example, Terrain is inspired by the most Aussie of landscapes – the outback. Inspired by endless red dirt and spinifex this colour exudes all the warmth and depth of the outback. The endless ocean that surrounds us inspires Deep Ocean and it also conjures up a sense of a misty, far-away mountain range such as the Blue Mountains.

Jasper is a testament to our eucalypt forests and you can really smell the gum and the feel the mist when you look at it. Pale Eucalypt goes one step further and mimics the colour of the eucalypt leaf, creating an entirely natural feeling from a manmade substance.

What About the City?

In addition to these colours inspired by nature, Colorbond has also paid testament to our urban side. The six new Colorbond colours reflect the movement and pace of our bustling city centers. Galactic is crisp, white and extremely adaptable. Aries blends the natural and the urban creating a copper colour, reflecting the way the bush and the city merge seamlessly at the edges. Celestian is the darkest of the colours and reflects the strength and solidity of our urban communities.

Choosing the Right Colorbond Colour

With all of those choices you may be feeling a little bewildered as to what will work with your home. When choosing your colour for your Colorbond roofing or colour scheme you need to take a few factors into consideration.

Firstly, you need to look at your environment. Colorbond would never be the success it is if it didn’t take cues from it’s environment and you need to do the same. If you live in the bush choose complimenting colours and if you live in the city do the same. You want your house to make a statement without being a jarring presence.

Secondly, you need to think about the style of your home. Colorbond has a color to suit your home; you just need to decide on your mission. If you want something contemporary go for mixes of bold and plain colours to create contrasts. If you want something traditional stick with the more traditional colours, such as Classic Cream and Cottage Green.

If you’re building a new home or renovating a home you can’t go past Colorbond. It is a truly remarkable product and a rare example of function meshing perfectly with aesthetics. The Colorbond colours also remind us to take cues from our environment and create the harmonies and contrasts that make our natural landscape so beautiful.
