Jade meets sage

From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

A room like this one is perfect for bringing a sense of the outdoors in during the winter.

The jade velvet sofa and hints of golden and brass accessories add an element of luxury in an otherwise casual space filled with soft and natural textures.

The Mediterranean-style wall effect was created using Resene Resitex Plastercote – an  elastomeric acrylic specialist finish tough enough to withstand the harsh environment. Based on tough acrylic elastomers that have an excellent 'memory' of their original shape when distorted, it’s ideally suited for structures that will flex and develop minor cracks. As an added bonus, it has improved dirt pick-up resistance and crack bridging properties. The colour is Resene Double Ash to bring out an earthy feel.


Mood board: The background is painted Resene Silver Chalice and the A4 drawdown paint swatches (clockwise from left to right) are in Resene Untamed, Resene Karaka, Resene Permanent Green and Resene New Leaf. The shorter vase is in Resene Helix and the taller vase is in Resene Permanent Green.
