With lots of love

Resene PaintsWhen the Ward-Ables bought their dream home, it had amazing possibilities, but lots of love was required. The kitchen looked like the original 1950s one, and was reminiscent of a smurf!

Over a couple of months, they collated their wants, focusing on how to make it a light, welcoming, spacious area. They definitely wanted the splashback to make a statement, so chose Resene Hot Chile. The white benchtop was flecked with tan and grey, so Resene Quarter Tea was an obvious choice to complement this and pull the kitchen together.

The length of the room initially looked lost; but when they spotted the Decosticker Komar Pusteblume at Resene, they knew this would complement the splashback and connect the dining room to the kitchen.

The blackboard finished in Resene Blackboard Paint was the finishing touch to add character and functionality, and is now the most commented on and loved part of their kitchen.
