The essential home office

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

The rising popularity of portable devices doesn’t do away with the need for a home office.

As a restful, well-ordered corner, this office nook has the storage you need and a pinboard made from rolls of adhesive cork painted in Resene Flintstone for a dusky brown finish. The wall, bookshelf, desk top and shelf are painted in Resene Quarter Atmosphere and the floor is stained in Resene Colorwood Rock Salt. The small vase is in Resene Nero, the angular vase is Resene Road Trip and the plant pot is Resene Gumboot.
