The third finalist of the Resene Colour Home Awards unveils a palette with passion.
David and Kirsty Wraight’s home reveals their joint endeavours as passionate home and business owners. David built the house, which merges villa and farmhouse styles, while Kirsty directed the interior decor and chose the colour scheme.
Nestled into a hilly 1.5 acres (0.6 hectares) on the outskirts of Blenheim, the Wraight house is also a little bit French country, which prompted Kirsty to choose soft colours punctuated with the occasional surprise. “The kitchen units are painted in Resene Quarter Rice Cake and, for a stark contrast, the scullery units are in Resene Blackjack with Resene Quarter Rice Cake walls,” says Kirsty. Meanwhile, the kitchen walls are a soft touch in Resene Emerge.
With three bedrooms in which to work her magic, the most feminine colour she chose was Resene Brandy Rose. “The pink came about by me looking at the Resene samples for something a bit different. I love playing with colour,” she says.
“I went with chocolate and green on the bed to bring out colours in the curtains, ground the room and give it a slightly more masculine feel as I had visions that it could be a bit ‘fluffy’, especially as I’m going to do bed-and-breakfast.”
