June 2004 finalist

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - June 2004 finalist

The warm Tuscan tones chosen by Adele Hammond have enlivened her Timaru front door and hallway and earned her $500 worth of Resene paint vouchers as the first Resene Colour Home award winner for 2004.

Adele Hammond

There were no surprises when Adele and Mitch Hammond of Timaru chose rich, bold colours for their bungalow home – they’d used adventurous colours in their previous, new homes. When they bought their circa 20s character house 18 months ago, Adele knew she would choose strong tones for this first renovation project.

For their new cedar tongue and groove front door, they chose Resene ‘Monarch’, which they carried through to the interior spaces as an accent colour. For the stairwell walls and the kitchen/living areas, Adele chose Resene ‘Hot Toddy’ to complement the timber staircase and bring “the warmth of Tuscany” indoors: “I love it. It really suits an older home.” Adele is also delighted with the effect the texture of the original basketweave lining paper adds to the result.
