I have added a new paved courtyard off the deck with seating and an umbrella for extra colour and shade, and a low timber wall, painted in Resene Shabby Chic, to define the space and create an accent. This will also work as secondary seating. Continuing the light, open feel, the house weatherboards are in Resene White Pointer, trimmed with Resene Rice Cake and a pop of Resene Just Dance on the door. It would be simple to change the colours of the low wall and door to update the look in the future. Resene Woodsman Whitewash brings the deck back to life; this product is an easy way to give the designer touch to timber fences, decks and furniture. phone 027 706 5374 web Splice Umbrella Basil Bangs +61 2 9938 4759 Resene White Pointer Dietes grandiflora Resene Woodsman Whitewash
