Two-toned neutrals

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

For large rooms, or simply as a striking feature, this unique two-toned look is a great way to add structure.

Here, the use of the inviting and warm Resene Tablelands at one end of the space seems to anchor the matching toned chair to create a snug and cosy corner. The tidemark of darker colour carries down the wall and along the floor for extra drama, and could be taken across the ceiling too. Here the proportions are kept to a one-third, two-thirds ratio which is more interesting than a half-half approach. Cleverly carrying that boundary through the shelves painted in the same two colours, catches the eye and cements the effect.

Mood board - two tones Two toned lounge.
Mood board: This duo-tone combination brings to mind the comforting warmth of a cafĂ© latte with a circular placemat in Resene Eighth Stonewashed, and an A4 drawdown paint swatch in Resene Tablelands against the tidemarked background of both colours.  Accessories: Fri chair from Cult Design, cup and round Twig Vase from Dryburgh,, taupe sheepskin from Father Rabbit, foliage from Georgie Malyon, Petra Leary Salt Lake 2 photographic print from endemicworld, Rachel Saunders Wave Vase and Onyx Bowl from Fourth St, All others stylist’s own.

On the contrasting lighter side, the wall, tables and tall vase are all painted in the fleecy beige of Resene Eighth Stonewashed while a sheepskin echoes the darker colour on the opposite side.

Paint colours: Resene Tablelands and Resene Eighth Stonewashed.
