Habitat 16 - Top Hits
We’re not talking music but the Habitat of the Week homes that have attracted the most hits.
John & Linley’s quirky coromandel beach house
Inspired by the styles and colours of Bali, India, Malaysia, Vietnam and Japan as well as the sea views through pohutukawa trees, the couple used fresh greens, (Resene Miso and Resene Hippie Green), soft cream (Resene Butter) and bold red (Resene Paprika).
In the bathroom Resene Miso works perfectly with the spicy Resene Paprika of the Japanese-style pivot doors. Tying the whole colour scheme together is Resene Nest Egg, a neutral earthy colour echoing the surrounding bush.
Simon & Glynn’s mix of antique and modern
The old home has retained plenty of character, thanks largely to the couple’s eclectic decorating style. The house is filled with a mixture of antique and contemporary, wood and stainless steel, leather and marble. Says Simon: “If you fill your home with the things you love, then the result will be a true reflection of who you are.
“We planted a tropical garden, so Resene Double Napa is a perfect foil to the lush green of palms. Although Resene Canterbury Clay is a strong colour, it’s a lighter contrast with our dark woods, and we like its warmth.”
John & Juliet’s cliff-hugging home by the ocean
The interior colours were chosen for their ability to look good during both the day and at night. “We wanted something that would be timeless and artistic, yet practical and comfortable. We wanted it to be a beautiful home in all seasons.”
