Good as new

Before paintingAfter living in their home for a couple of years, the Pivac family were ready to spruce it up and modernise the colour scheme.

Sick of all the natural browns that had been used everywhere and wanting to be brave and make a real difference to their home, they eschewed the brown neutrals and struck out in the direction of greys. They fell in love with Resene Jimmy Dean and were determined to use it. With advice from the local Resene Colour Consultant they settled on Resene Grey Suit for the upper level and Resene Greywacke for the windows, with Resene Jimmy Dean featured on the lower level to ground the house.

With the help of Dad and a couple of friends the house was painted over the Christmas period - a delightful Christmas present. The new colour scheme is just what they wanted and the Pivacs are enjoying living in a house that feels like it is new.
