October 2003 finalist

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - Oct 2003 finalist

Jeanette Culton-Mayor of Waihi Beach was thrilled when she found the perfect colour for her daughter's bedroom; her efforts won her $500 worth of paint vouchers in this month's Resene awards.

Stella's blue bedroom

Jeanette Culton-Mayor had wisely chosen the duvet cover before the feature wall colour for three-year-old Stella's bedroom. The bed sports an EziBuy double duvet, while a matching single duvet was split down the seams to create curtains. Then, when Jeanette discovered the bright turquoise tones of Resene 'Scooter', she knew she had the look for a feminine bedroom that wouldn't date as Stella grew.

"It was an easy decision to make," she says. "Resene 'Scooter' is just perfect." To give the other neutral walls, in Resene 'Sisal', a visual lift, Jeanette traced on random circles, hand-painted in Resene 'Scooter'. Two wall shelves have also been given the Resene 'Scooter' treatment, while Jeanette framed the spare pillowcase in a complementary timber frame.

Room details

Budget: Paint $100, Duvets $68, Shelves $29, Frame $9.95, Wall Plaque $45, Total $251.95.
