A new take on purple – smoked and sultry


From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery


Sultry, smoky purple takes charge this season.

Purple shades of bedroom colours
Deep, rich, luscious purple

Deep, rich, luscious purple is a colour to watch for this year. It doesn’t have to be used as a bright jewel tone.

Try one of the many muted versions of the colour from the Resene colour collections – check out Resene Multi-finish palette cards 4 and 56. Sultry and complex, these bruised lilacs and purples are perfect for a bedroom retreat like this. The dark, cocooning walls are painted in Resene Gun Powder, the floor is in Resene Avalanche and the cabinet is Resene Chapta and Verse. Add a trio of vases in Resene Steam Roller, Resene Mamba and Resene Couture, and repurpose a couple of metal woven platters as wall decorations. They are painted in Resene Sumptuous (large) and Resene Couture.
