Beachy keen

From habitat plus - wood stains

Nothing says relaxation quite like the beach. Bring a touch of seaside rest and relaxation to your home’s interior with the Resene Colorwood We Speak Beach range.

This range of colour-washes comes in six relaxing hues ideal for flooring, walls or furniture in a range of colours borrowed from the beach. Like popular Resene Colorwood Whitewash, Resene Light Greywash and Resene Mid Greywash, the We Speak Beach range are colour-washes which sit more on the surface of the wood than a stain, but still allow the natural grain of the timber to show through. These weathered hues will take you from sea to shore with the soft blues and greens of Resene Rising Tide and Resene Shore Thing, sandy hues like Resene Breathe Easy and Resene Becalm to the colours of the rocky shore with Resene Shade and Resene Bask. Use these wash hues individually or combine them into a coastal palette. Ideal for baches and cribs or to bring coastal style to any home.
