Dark and stormy

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Moody navy blues that look like they came straight out of the Mariana Trench, such as Resene Twilight Zone, Resene Bewitched, Resene Wishing Well and Resene Submerge are making waves in the interior design world.

When paired up with equally dark and stormy greys like Resene Dark Web, Resene Suits and Resene Quarter Bokara Grey, you can build up a deeply layered look – especially in a bedroom. If done right, the result is sure to make you want to dive right into bed and stay there until winter’s over.

Mood board: Background in Resene Half Chicago with A4 drawdown paint swatches (clockwise from top left) in Resene Remember Me, Resene White Island, Resene King Tide, Resene Wishing Well and Resene Poured Milk. The hexagon vase is in Resene Wishing Well and the skinny vase is in Resene Remember Me.

Cloudy greys and moody blues are layered sky high in this sophisticated master bedroom, while brass details and ochre velvet chair provide a touch of warmth to balance out this otherwise cool space – creating the perfect place to seek shelter from temperamental winter weather.

The Resene White Island walls bring levity to the dark tongue-and-groove paneling in Resene Indian Ink and keep it from being overpowering. The flooring is in Resene Raindance – a dusty blue-grey – while the bedside table looks bold in Resene Wishing Well. The small angular vase is also painted Resene Wishing Well, the white vases are in Resene Poured Milk, the tall blue vase is in Resene Meditation and the shorter blue vase (with twigs) is in Resene Remember Me. Pile on charcoal-on-navy-on-charcoal bedding and finish with a soft, low-pile rug in steel blue.

If an ochre-coloured accent chair isn’t for you, try one in an equally vibrant contrasting colour like aqua or coral.
