Bathed in art

Ana’s home is a small cottage, built in 1854, one of two cottages side by side that were built for the original homestead. Ana has lived here for the past four years (and before that, the previous seven years in the cottage next door), and have spent this time renovating - all with Resene paints (inside and out). Ana’s father was an architect so she has been brought up on Resene paints her entire life.

Ana called in the help of a Resene Colour Consultant to visit her home and provide guidance. She was fantastic, recommending interior colours for the house. Ana collects art so she was keen to ensure it would let the art ‘pop’ rather than having it sit on a boring white wall.

All the art tells a story, with most of it by friends and acquaintances, throughout the house.

The bathroom was painted Resene Rhino. Even though it’s a small bathroom (2.5m x 2.5m), the colour works so well given the amount of white framed original art Ana has hung. The ceiling and trim are in Resene Black White.

Thanks to Ana.
