The humble triangle is being used in all sorts of inventive ways.
This stunning triangle wall is easier to achieve than it looks, although the trick is in the colour selection. We've taken 10 colours, and started with the darker ones in the bottom left-hand corner, then gradually lightened the scheme as it heads to the top right-hand corner. Pop in an unexpected colour (the dusky gold) in three spots, and there you have it. A stunning feature wall all for the cost of some Resene testpots and masking tape... and time. The sideboard drawers are in Resene Bianca and the cork tile floor is in Resene Blast Grey 1 by Cork in Colour. Colours are: Resene Essence, Resene Melodic, Resene Whirlwind, Resene Reflection, Resene Steam Roller, Resene Blast Grey 1, Resene Castaway, Resene Nauti, Resene Cruising, Resene Mozart, Resene Half Raven and Resene Bianca.
Refresh your outdoor furniture by staining it, and adding some triangle stencils. The chair above is stained with Resene Waterborne Woodsman Limed Gum and stencilled with Resene Tasman. The right-hand chair is finished with Resene Waterborne Woodsman Smokey Ash with stencils in Resene Martini and Resene Intrepid. The deck is in Resene Waterborne Woodsman Limed Oak. This stunning table, above, is stencilled in Resene Waterborne Woodsman Limed Gum, Resene Waterborne Woodsman Limed Ash, Resene Woodsman Whitewash, Resene Spark metallic paint, and Resene Gold Dust metallic paint.
