Soft muted greens are the new neutral this season.
Use a two-tone approach for interest (this is Resene Bud at the back and Resene Siam on the side wall), and add deeper vegetative greens, like Resene Paddock and Resene Jurassic, to enrich the tonal appeal of the room. Burnt terracotta is a natural accent partner to greens, added here with painted pots and basketry in Resene Mai Tai and Resene Rusty Nail, as well as within the timber tones of the table. A floor in Resene Cargo is a light olive blend, neither green nor brown.
The space has a contemporary vibe, yet the colours and textures add just enough of earthy edge to keep us grounded and reminded of nature. An unexpected counterpoint is the shiny disco-ball style pendant light.
The wabi sabi look marries beautiful with the re-emergence of the artisan, someone who creates by hand and whose work bears the imperfections of being made by hand. It’s a rebellion against all of the mass-produced stuff that fills our world and our shops.
