Try Japandi

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Japandi – a mix between Japan style and Scandi with a simple organic style and using natural colours, organic shapes, and textural elements.

This interpretation of the look has walls in Resene Double Sisal, a floor in Resene Parchment, a side table in Resene Scrub and a jug in Resene Korma. The plant pot is in Resene Mai Tai, the basket planter is in Resene Double Lemon Grass and the tall vase is in Resene Triple Ash. The wide bowl on top of the cabinet is in Resene Soya Bean.
