Habitat plus - Clash


The world continues to shrink. Global influences converge.

We are now part of a global village. We don’t just share technology and ideas but welcome styles, colours and materials from other cultures. Then we mix them in our own way.

Not only are people nomadic, ideas also flow freely across borders and space. Exposure to new cultures encourages mixing and matching of colours in unexpected combinations. Colours that would once have never been seen together are now happy partners; it’s colour clash with a purpose.

Mix Scandi with tribal. Merge Pacifica with Eastern. Drop some Californian into your Moroccan. When you break the old colour rules there is no going back..

Testing a testpot
The best way to use a Resene testpot is to paint the colour onto an A2 card (available at Resene ColorShops), leaving a white border around the edge. Move the card around the space at different times of the day and night, in natural and artificial light.

Top tip
Use intense colours and texture to lift an otherwise neutral scheme, like this patterned linen bedware against a Resene White Thunder bedhead and Resene Half Evolution walls.

Layering enhances the look - use rugs, cushions, fur throws on floors and furniture.
