Resene Small Room Awards... but big in impact

Have you done something bold or interesting with paint or wallpaper in a small room in your house? It could be an office, nursery, laundry or powder room – the only criteria is it's small in space but big in impact.

We'd love to see your efforts. Send us some images of your chosen room and be in to win $1000 in our Small Room Awards.
