The first finalists of the Resene Colour Home Awards had fun creating two artistic kids’ rooms
Having a painter in the family helped to make redecorating a dated 1960s stucco house in Whanganui a breeze. Joanna and Brent Eastabrook, an emergency nurse and painter respectively, have been renovating their home one room at a time.
Daughter Grace loves pink, Joanna says. “This made it easy to come up with a combination to impress her.” The couple paired Resene Quarter Cavern Pink, a beautiful rosy pink, with the gorgeous apricot Imaginarium Charm wallpaper from Resene, and painted the ceiling and trim in Resene Quarter Black White. For his room, son Lucas chose Resene Half New Denim Blue, a dark moody blue, and Resene Longitude, a pastel grey-blue. A bold yellow wall map completed the look.
Joanna was impressed with Lucas’ choice of colours for his room. “We love having rooms that reflect the personalities of our beautiful children,” says Joanna. “We like to create spaces they will enjoy.”
