'See' the colour scheme - Computer Visualization

In addition to virtually altering your home (check out 'See' the alterations story), Computer Visualization also offer a full colour scheming service where they can take your image, develop a colour scheme and recolour your image electronically, so that you can see the finish before you start the painting, without having to do any of the computer work yourself.

Computer Visualisations

The house in the original scan was a typical 1970's style brick and tile, with a block base. At the time the image was created, some improvements had already been implemented such as plastering, the fitting of a new modern garage door and some retaining added for the new lawn. Computer Visualization was commissioned to create a computer image so new colour schemes to modernise the property could be analysed.

Colour Schemes

With some customer input, Resene Solitaire from the Resene Whites & Neutrals chart was chosen in keeping with the style of the home along with Resene Kilamanjaro from the Range 2002 for the window frames, facings and barge boards. Resene Metallic Copper from the Resene Roof paint systems was chosen for the roof and windowsills. Resene Cherrywood from the Resene Woodsman penetrating oil chart was used to match the garage door and the concrete was redone with Resene Pebble Grey from the Resene Paving chart. In keeping with the "new look house" the curtains were whitened so as not to distract from the final results.

The selecting of modern Resene colours as portrayed in live form by Computer Visualization has transformed the original dated property into a modern attractive home at minimal cost and if implemented would no doubt add considerably to the value of the property.

Computer Visualization divides the image into a series of individually selected areas where different colours are applied. If the first selection of colours is not exactly to the customer's liking, other combinations can readily be tried until the preferred colour scheme has been developed.
