Natural Palettes: Finding beautiful fall colors on the Bruce Trail in Hamilton, Ontario

Posted by Elaina Principato in Color Inspiration | 1 comments


The Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest footpath, and stretches the entire length (450 miles) of the Niagara Escarpment (a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve). It is one of the most beautiful places to be in Canada during the autumn months.

We went out with the Nix Pro Color Sensor to source colors for some fall palettes using hues taken straight from nature. Since the Nix Pro is small and lightweight, it fits easily in your pocket and is a welcome companion on any hike. By linking with an app on your smartphone, it measures the exact color of a surface and saves it for later in a matter of seconds, and can even provide best matches in paint brands like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin-Williams without having to bring items to the paint store. It’s like a tape measure for color.
