From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Keeping it charming, cosy and oh-so-modern in this strong blue and grey look, this living room complements a feature wall in (from top) Resene Indian Ink, Resene Athens Grey and Resene Atmosphere with floors painted in Resene Stack.

A velvet armchair and deep blue patterned rug warms up the look, with a bench in Resene Blue Night in semi-gloss Resene Lustacryl – perfect to stack mid-century modern-inspired vases, decorative plants and the latest reads on architecture and interior inspiration. While triangles are one of the simplest feature wall effects, the structure and colours of these triangles keep it from being overly cliche, giving a modern look to this living room.

Ropey side table in Resene Indian Ink, frame in Resene Eighth Tapa, small pot in Resene Eighth Tapa and basket (with plants) in Resene Atmosphere.
