White is right

The Barthow family recently renovated our three bedroom 1960s home, which included repainting the entire interior with Resene Sea Fog on the walls, and Resene Half Sea Fog on the ceilings and trims.

They found the crispness of the whites helped to turn a tired 1960s interior, which was covered in the original wallpaper, into a fresher and contemporary space. It also created the perfect versatile backdrop for the nursery as they didn’t know at the time whether they were having a boy or girl, and offset the pops of colour they added through the rug and linen, as well as the warm tones in the timber furnishings.

They are so happy with how it turned out, and since have had their wee girl who absolutely loves her room too!
