For the love of colour

kitchen and dining room decorating

The Worsfold family repainted the interior of their home last year after it had undergone extensive earthquake repairs.

They all love colour and were able to experiment with the colours that they liked the most. They enjoy painting, and if they tire of a colour we just repaint it.

The house is a villa built in the 1890s, so it has high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and decorative plasterwork throughout. Using bright or dark colours contrasted with the white ceilings, and allowed the plasterwork to be shown to its best advantage.

The main bedroom is finished in Resene Half Reservoir, with a second bathroom in Resene Black and Resene Half Concrete and the third bedroom in Resene Snowy Mint and Resene Feijoa. The living room is finished in Resene Raven and Resene Half Surrender, with the grey theme continuing into the lounge in Resene Half Concrete. The hallway is Resene Surfs Up and the bathroom is Resene Black and Resene White. The Resene White is also continued throughout the home on the trims, ceilings and skirting.

They are thrilled with the way the house looks after years of waiting for the repairs to take place.
