At home with sea greens

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

An easy-to-make feature wall created with painted ‘planks’ of plywood gives a rich backdrop to this colourful, yet contemporary room.

Sea greens and teals are softened with soft greys for a look that suits any season and any style of house. The plank paint effect is done with a basecoat of Resene Inside Back, roughly over-brushed with Resene Gulf Stream, Resene Stromboli and Resene Half Opal. The floor is painted in Resene Inside Back, the coffee table legs are in Resene Half Gravel and the top is in Resene Alabaster. The side table is painted in Resene Bianca, the planter basket in Resene Billabong, the tall vase is in Resene St Kilda and the bowl is in Resene Wishlist.
