On safari

Manor Park house

With safari and deep space themes firm favourites the queue for sleepovers is growing rapidly.

Manor Park House

The Sinclair House in Manor Park, Pakuranga, Auckland has been largely constructed in a precast concrete tilt slab system directly overcoated with a textured paint, negating the need to install plasterboard. Flamboyant and unexpected splashes of colour create a personality for each room.

The dining room features a dramatic Resene Cab Sav (deep brugundy) ceiling sharply contrasting with the predominantly Resene Wan White (off-white from the Karen Walker range) walls and black sunshade blinds. Continuing the Resene Wan White backdrop into the family and kitchen areas, a Resene Indochine (rusted orange) feature wall and Resene Tana (green toned neutral) return wall add depth and spice.

Not to be outdone, behind each bedroom door three different worlds await. A wall of Resene Arrowtown (smoky brown) placed below a curved bulkhead detail on the ceiling dominates the Resene Wan White master bedroom and is joined by the same colour on the ensuite vanity to compliment the terrazzo top and sandblasted glass inserts.

Conjuring up images of Africa, the first child's bedroom is painted using a base palette of Resene Kilamanjaro (deep blackened brown) and Resene McKenzie (warm beige brown). The trestle desk is camouflaged in an identical paint system and the safari scene has been completed by the addition of a Resene Pacifica (spicy yellow green) coated storage cupboard and a painted tiger.

The second child's bedroom reflects the occupant's love of all things Star Wars. Resene Putty (yellow oxide cream) walls and a Resene Outer Space (deep blue) ceiling are punctuated by tiny sparkler lights carefully placed to form the Southern Cross, Libra starsign and a giant fish. The high tech space theme is continued onto the wardrobe door routed into a grid pattern and coated with dazzling Resene Silver Aluminium, and through onto walls featuring Star War's characters carefully coloured in Resene. Asthmatic concerns meant painted floors would be the healthiest option. Artification painted the floor in a tile pattern using Resene Putty as the base colour, giving a stunning desert like finish perfectly in keeping with the latest Star Wars release.

With safari and deep space themes firm favourites the queue for sleepovers is growing rapidly.
