A Hawke's Bay home is transformed with clever use of colour blocking
While repainting the entire interior of her home, Danelle Kendrick learnt a couple of things about colour. Firstly, how effective warm neutrals can be in turning a plain room into a welcoming one.
The second thing she’s learnt is that colour doesn't have to cover a whole wall. “I started colour blocking in the kids’ bedrooms,” Danelle explains. “I wanted to give them a space that was a bit more fun than just white walls.” She picked out a selection of testpots and the boys chose their favourite. For Reeve that was Resene Duck Egg Blue and for Finn, Resene Flax. Reeve’s room features a vertical colour block instead of a horizontal colour block. “Painting the colour up the wall instead of across helped the space to feel bigger,” Danelle explains.
The boys are thrilled with their rooms, but it’s the laundry that wins Danelle’s heart. Here, Resene Sour Dough features on a panelled feature wall. “It really makes the room stand out,” she says. “And, it makes the laundry so much more fun!”
