Stunning stand out

Barbara loved this country house's sunny lounge, leading up to the kitchen/dining area, with its statuesque wall, but it lacked strength in the original beige colour. The ceilings are raked with beams painted white, so this wall needed to stand out.

The house has large decks around it with a beautiful green outlook of leafy old oak trees and lush paddocks; so, Barbara decided the inside should be cool and fresh in soft blue/greys, whites, and this stunning Resene Blue Night teamed with Resene Quarter Surrender. At night, the deep blue colour is soft but dramatic and when candles are lit it certainly has become a stunning feature!

Barbara has used black Barn door hardware which matches the black fireplace and slate surround with its soaring chimney to the full height of the lounge ceiling. Silver accents have been used for curtain rails, door handles, candlesticks and photo frames. The dining curtains are white linen, which float in the country breeze with white bamboo shutters; and soft blue/grey, white and silver striped linen curtains in the lounge.

The space feels calm, fresh, uplifting and inviting... and Barbara loves it!


Thanks to Barbara.
