Making space

Resene Thornton Cream and Resene Eighth Thornton Cream for the trims Kate and Mike have been renovating their 1950s brick and tile home over the past 18 months.

Untouched since the circa 70s they took on the task to fully renovate and create their first home.

Their design goals were to maximise the three bedrooms, living, bathroom and laundry areas to remove any dead space. Secondly they wanted to create an open flow kitchen/living area. Thirdly they wanted the colour palette to create a spacious, warm and peaceful ambiance.

They chose Resene Thorndon Cream for the walls throughout with Resene Eighth Thorndon Cream for the trim and ceilings. The floors are high gloss white with carpet in the bedrooms.
