The purchase of the three vibrant cushions was the base to the colour scheme of Linda's new home. Because the house has such clean lines, different materials and textures were used to create movement, with strong splashes of vibrant colours used against a background of Resene Black White painted walls.
Floor to ceiling windows throughout provide unobstructed, panoramic views of the rugged environment for which the West Coast is famous. The sense of oneness with the environment bathes the home with natural light. Green and blue bring the outside in, resembling the nature and ocean.
The café corner within the kitchen/dining has a kiwiana feeling, using textured wallpaper, in a retro design, being a Wallton dado rail painted with Resene Camarone (rich green), which is also used in the master bedroom.
Linda has used Resene Tangerine in her teenage son's room, on the bed head wall only, so you see the colour impact when entering the room but not when you are in bed. This works well painted over a textured wallpaper Wallton Grafico because of his love of ball sports.
The cushion colours are carried into the third bedroom with rich and vibrant Resene Optimist.
Visitors often comment on the calmness in Linda's home but don't understand how and why it works. Everything flows together even though bright vibrant colours have been chosen.
