Colouring a big boy’s room

big boys room

The Martin’s eight year old son wanted a 'big boy's room' but they knew it would have to be a do-over that would last him through his teens as well. He wanted blue walls so was steered towards the Karen Walker Paints collection from Resene and he chose Resene Quarter Powder Blue. This was teamed with Resene Alabaster on all the woodwork and ceiling.

Cherie’s husband did all the work himself in the school holidays. The last finishing touch was the new shutters.

Their son is beyond pleased with it and all can see that it is easily going to be a room that will adapt and last years.
