Colour story: go with the flow
Noelene Rachinger and Alan Blackman recently set about painting their entire St Heliers, Auckland home in a range of Resene colours. They drew inspiration from their bold furnishings and artwork, repeating splashes of red, in the bar stools and bedlinen, throughout the house. They kept the look classic in the downstairs living room and kitchen, painted in Resene Rakaia, echoed by the exterior of the home in Resene Chicago and Resene Half Alabaster, creating seamless flow from inside to out. “We wanted to use colours that we loved and mix them with colours that would appeal to others,” says Noelene.
Upstairs is where the fun begins, with the guest bedroom treated to lashings of Resene Pirate. “The bedroom is the first thing you see when you walk up the stairs and we wanted a wow-factor,” says Noelene.
Discourage pesky flies from sitting on your paintwork this summer with Resene SpaceCote Flat or Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen with Fly Deterrent – these will deter flies and any fly spots they do leave behind will be easier to wipe away, leaving your paintwork looking fresher for longer.
