Inspired by Paddington

Nicola loves her villa, but it was definitely due a new exterior paint job.

Inspired by Paddington

Inspiration for choosing the colour scheme came from growing up in Paddington, Sydney, where Victorian terraces are painted in all different colour combinations.

Nicola had seen grey and yellow used before on a terrace and thought it would work beautifully on a New Zealand villa. Looking to recreate that look, Nicola searched through the Resene colour charts and came up with a palette of Resene Double Alabaster, Resene Double Trojan and Resene Turbo.
