Habitat plus - the unexpected

Make a statement with surprise elements.

Why have what everyone else has? Do you yearn for a little spice in your life, a little sizzle in your scheme? Be a bit subversive. Delight and surprise yourself and your visitors with an unexpected use of colour, a splash of bright or bold here and there, or a graphic over-the-top wallpaper. Make a statement, be unique. Go on, you know you want to.

Keep proportions of bright colour in control. Go for 10 percent presence so you add delight but don’t overdo it.

Metallic Ceiling, feature exterior colour
Left: Rather than classic white, an ornate plaster ceiling is painted in Resene Silver Aluminium metallic.. Right: Resene Red Berry peeks out from the eaves of this house designed by Cameron Driver of Maximarc.

Brightly and cheerful kitchen
Pink and orange in a kitchen? Why not. This is Resene Daredevil and Resene Colour Me Pink in a home designed by Neil Fenwick Architects. The far wall is Resene Maestro.
