Street prideResene Half Bison Hide on all weatherboards, Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream on all windows/trims and Resene Grey Friar for roof and doors


The Berrymans have recently completed painting their home. The house was originally painted Resene Dutch White with green trims and roof. Being a large home located on a corner block it has prominent street frontage, so choosing the correct colour scheme was paramount.

Prior to painting the newer part of the home didn't appear to blend well with the original part - some people thought it was a separate dwelling. The Berryman's main objective was to give their home a fresh modern look while blending new and old. Keeping all the windows and trim the one colour didn't highlight the different styles of architecture in the newer part of the home.

Seeking a completely individual colour scheme different from neighbouring properties was a balancing act but many Resene testpots later they opted for Resene Half Bison Hide on all eatherboards, Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream on all windows/trims and Resene Grey Friar for roof and doors. Resene Thorndon Cream provided warmth, unlike stark white, while still providing a nice contrast against the Resene Bison Hide. The colour scheme has transformed the entire home and they have lost count of the number of enquiries they have had about the colours used.
