Paua inspirationInspired by the colours in polished Paua shells


Sue's striking bedroom feature wall was inspired by the colours in polished Paua shells.

The project involved the bedroom renovation of their Foxton Beach house. The feature wall was divided into four abstract shapes in a criss-cross pattern using a strip of laminated Paua as the border between the colours.

The Resene Enamacryl Metallic range of paints gave the depth of colour required and with the metallic particles rising to the surface when dry, the effects both during the day and night are stunning.

The colours used were Resene Time Warp, Resene Zodiac, Resene Axis and Resene Lucifer. The wall was prepared and taped off with plastic sheets to protect the individual colours. Each colour was applied first by roller then by spray. The remaining walls are painted white.

The Paua strips were provided by Ocean Shell of Riverton. After outlining their ideas via email Ocean Shell laser cut the strips and delivered them to Sue ready for application.
