As thousands of refugees traverse the world in search of a home and a better life, we desire calm and security. We want authenticity in a world sometimes gone mad, where our lives are online for all to see and when economic uncertainty touches us all. We want to take control with more orderly interiors in reassuring navy and soothing inky blue. Straight-laced teals and aquas make us feel safe, and rather than fully open-plan spaces, we’re creating cosy nooks for reading or eating. Our homes are more than perfunctory shelters. They are our sanctuary. Left: Soothing blues and a reading nook. The back wall is in Resene Zinzan, the front wall is in Resene Escape, and the floor is in Resene Colorwood Rock Salt wood stain.
