Bit by bit

The Thompson family moved into their beautiful home in Nelson and got stuck in with a complete renovation from top to toe. New carpets and flooring are on the plans along with new solar hot water and even a new cooker.


Deb worked with the local Resene ColorShop team, drawing on their helpful knowledge and advice to help narrow down just the right colour palette.

Initially hoping to have their house painted professionally, they found it was beyond their budget so husband Neal made the job manageable by focusing on painting it bit-by-bit as time allows.

Dining room

The entrance hall and main living area are now completely transformed. Repainting from a dated red to a new feature wall in Resene Mountain Mist has modernised the home and is a much more flattering complement to the existing curtains. The grey theme continues onto Resene Concrete in the downstairs flat with Resene Maverick in the upstairs bedroom.

Thanks to Deb and Neal.
