Habitat plus - for the kids
There is no place as full of potential as a child’s room when it comes to letting your decorating imagination – and theirs – run riot.
Bright colour is practically a prerequisite, and the Resene KidzColour range is guaranteed to provide the perfect colour for the job. There are also many fabulous contemporary variations such as Resene Blackboard Paint – which is a hit with the youngsters, but can end up being just as much fun in adult spaces too!
Top tip: As well as Resene Blackboard Paint, Resene Write-On Wall Paint can be applied over any colour from the Resene range to create an area you can write all over without damaging the walls. Also try Resene Magnetic Magic paint, used as a basecoat to turn any wall into a magnetic surface.
Classic yet contemporary, this cool scheme features walls in Resene Bounty
, a Provencal steel blue with a grounding patina of age. It’s a colour that will take children from babyhood through to the teen years, and has an aged vintage feel. Contrasting crisply on the ceiling and skirting is Resene Half Rice Cake
, a clean-edged shade with a warming touch of ivory.
Feature walls rule, but with a twist. Resene Blackboard Paint
provides the perfect reusable canvas for a budding Picasso to hone his or her skills, and the smart black contrasts perfectly with Resene Chaos
, used on the window wall. This bold, sassy pillar box red is bright, pure and infinitely interesting. Chalky, soft almost-grey Resene Black White
complements this scheme perfectly, on the ceiling and trims.
There are no rules with kids’ colour, and if he or she has more than one favourite – no problem! The deep delicious summer sea blue of Resene Surfs Up
– used on the back wall and window frames – sits easily with the flamboyant yellow-based green of Resene Wham
on the adjacent wall for a result that’s undeniably striking. Sharp white Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream
is perfect for the ceiling and trims with its faint, inherent touch of green.
The mischievous clean, bold orange of Resene Orang-atan
has proved a huge hit in the Resene KidzColour range with its lively and uplifting qualities. It resonates perfectly with the blue furniture and with Resene Eighth Pearl Lusta
, a versatile, changeable, almost white neutral used on the ceiling and trims.
