Inspired by Travel

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

If you’re looking for some inspo for your home spaces, choosing colours or wanting to do a mini make over, here are a few ideas on how to get started. Use your own experiences and favourite things as a place to start; that way your spaces will be uniquely yours and reflect who you are and your own style. Often your fashion style comes through in your choices for homewares, so this can be a great place to start. If you are looking for colour inspiration, try flicking through your travel pics to see if the places and spaces you have visited inspire your colour choices. These three spaces have all been inspired by my recent travels and then developed to incorporate the Karen Walker palettes from Resene paints.

Confessions of Morocco

This space was inspired by my recent trip to Morocco with the chalky pink walls of Marrakesh, the rooftop views and at how amazing the plants looked against this backdrop. Staying in amazing spaces such as El Fenn, a boutique hotel with impeccable style and experiencing the famous high tea at Sketch in London were also great inspirations to the finer elects of this space.
