Flower power

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards competition - first finalist

Hand-painted daisies in candy-coloured hues transform a storage space into a cheerful chill-out room.

Kirsty Young

After trying – and failing – to find a wallpaper that suited both her daughters’ tastes, Kirsty Young took it upon herself to create something unique for their chill-out room in Khandallah, Wellington.

“We draw all the time at home and flowers are a predominant theme, so it was the perfect inspiration.”

Kirsty started transforming the family’s storage room during the first Covid-19 lockdown. Resene Quarter Rice Cake was used on the walls and floor to bring welcome lightness to the room. Katherine wanted a pink wall, so Resene Pink Lace was chosen as the feature wall hue with blues and golds, while Emily’s favourite shades feature as the flower stems in Resene Wild Thing, Resene Tacao and Resene French Pass.
