Chocolate in stripes

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Deep, chocolatey brown is given a fun, bold new life with this striped wall.

The stripes in Resene Thunder Road and Resene Quarter Spanish White make an eye-catching statement that is further set off by the grassy green drawers in Resene Away We Go.

Anchoring the whole look, and preventing it from becoming too overwhelming, is the floor in Resene Triple Duck Egg Blue. This is a great example of using a colour as a neutral that allows other bolder shades to sing, but still adds warmth and interest. The choice of bed linen also brings everything together emphasising the stripes and adding another pop of complementary colour.

Mood board: Background in Resene Triple Duck Egg Blue, A4 drawdown paint swatches in (from botom) Resene Raindance, Resene Thunder Road, Resene Quarter Spanish White and Resene Away We Go.   Accessories: Castle and Things bedlinen (various) and Wally Cotton Knit Cushion Cover from Small Acorns. Ultra-soft Jersey Quilt Cover from Adairs. Minky Cat Pot, Diplodicus Book Ends and Forsa Work Lamp, from Shut The Front Door. Other toys, books and shoes, stylist’s own.

The toybox on the floor is another great way to add a fun rainbow of different colours to a child’s bedroom, but done in such a way that it works with the rest of the colour scheme instead of clashing with it. The colours used on the toybox are Resene Jailbreak, Resene Slipstream, Resene Black White, Resene Porter, Resene Shabby Chic, Resene Influential and Resene Hive. The triangles, or other geometric shapes, could be easily stencilled or masked on.
