Innocent accessories that sparked a colour adventure for home builders and owners Robert and Linda Caldana. Each cushion had a simple cross motif but each was a different vibrant colour: green, orange and blue. The Caldana’s new home in Greymouth on the West Coast is clean-lined and contemporary. The couple chose a careful blend of materials and textures to give interest to the exterior. Then they continued that creative approach with the interiors, by using well- placed blocks of energetic colour over textured walls: Resene Camarone (a clean jade green), Resene Tangerine (a juicy orange) and Resene Optimist (a vivid turquoise blue). The use of such strong colour is balanced by a neutral and sophisticated backdrop of Resene Black White, used on most of the walls and ceilings. It’s a bold approach most people would shy away from but which delivers up a distinctive home of delightful visual surprises. The rear of the house has full-height windows that look out onto the rugged coastline. The green and blue walls represent the colours of nature and the ocean, and match the strength of the natural light that bathes the interior. Says Linda: “It creates a sense of Left: Robert and Linda’s ‘kiwiana café corner’ looks fresh and punchy in Resene Camarone, painted over an anaglypta wallpaper (Wallton 181401).
