The Lathams designed and painted their own home, using Resene colours extensively, particularly as highlights. The home stands above Brightwater in Nelson and has commanding views over the Waimea Plains and to Tasman Bay. It’s a very powerful view so strong bursts of colour could be used.
Once inside, the hall is Resene Double Alabaster with a pop of colour on the bathroom door, in Resene Parachute, and the studio door, in Resene Wild Thing. The bathroom is painted in Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel in Resene Parachute and Resene Sea Fog.
Coloured doors continue to the laundry, with Resene Curiosity, the gym, with Resene Touche, the garage with Resene Reservoir and the bike workshop with Resene Smitten. The interior of these rooms are Resene Double Alabaster walls with Resene Sea Fog trims.
Thanks to the Latham family.
