Batik match

Resene Adventure picks up the deep purple and indigo in a batikValerie has travelled to Malaysia where she bought a beautiful batik with two women and a dragon. Although she sold or gave away most everything she owned when she moved to New Zealand from the US a few years later, the batik came with her.

Upon buying a new house, Valerie and her partner decided to make the batik the focal point of their bedroom. It was initially difficult to find the right wall colour to match the deep purple and indigo of the fabric, but at their Resene ColorShop they found exactly what they were looking for - Resene Adventure.

Resene Adventure is exactly that - a bold statement transporting a previously dull room into an exciting journey of colour. Depending on the lighting and time of day, the feature wall always looks a little bit different - more blue some days, more purple other days, but always in perfect harmony with the artwork and the rest of the room. They could not be happier with their colour choice and the look of the master bedroom as a whole.
