World of contrasts

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - First finalist 2018/19

The first finalist of the Resene Colour Home Awards drew creative inspiration from her family’s hobbies and passions.

Jessica Cameron used Resene paints to add personality throughout her home, from a monochrome statement in her living room to creative themes in her kids’ bedrooms.

Son Brody’s room is inspired by the family’s love of riding on motorcycles and in four-wheel drives. Jessica used a base of Resene ‘Black White’ and traced tyre tracks onto the wall in Resene ‘All Black’, then painted trees on in Resene ‘Oxygen’, Resene ‘Subzero’, Resene ‘Stack’ and Resene ‘All Black’.

Daughter Honor’s room, meanwhile, was given the princess treatment in colours such as Resene ‘Ballerina’ and Resene ‘Unicorn’.

In Jessica’s living and dining room, thick horizontal stripes in Resene ‘Black White’ and Resene ‘All Black’ create drama and set the scene" "for sophisticated entertaining."

Meet + Greet - Jessica Cameron renovated her quake-damaged Christchurch home on a budget, thanks to some creative DIY work. She lives with daughter Honor, 5, and son Brody, 2.

Royal Tour - In daughter Honor’s room, Jessica created a feature panel in Resene ‘Fountain Blue’, with coloured sprinkles painted on and a layer of Resene FX Pearl Shimmer to finish.
