Amber's colour scheme is bright, warm and a little different.
She has always been inspired by the colours of Turkey and loves to be surrounded by colour to help keep her mood uplifted. Amber believes your surroundings can have a huge influence on mental health and she wants to be able to provide some happiness for herself and anyone who passes by.
When it came to painting her house, Amber wanted to be able to walk up my driveway and have the feeling of a bright, happy home. The lovely ladies at the Shirley Resene ColorShop made it so much fun to choose.
The year Amber purchased the house, her older sister sadly passed away at a young age. Amber's colour scheme is dedicated to her sister. She had plenty of help choosing it from family to flatmates to neighbours. Amber enjoyed the input from the whole little community.
The amazing Fleur Green painted the house and had all the neighbours in awe of her great work.
The Resene Energy Yellow walls was chosen because her sister's favourite flowers were sunflowers. She said they always seemed as though they were smiling at her. The Resene Blue Diamond windowsills were chosen as her sister's favourite colour was purple. Resene Lochmara frames are in memory of her crystal blue eyes. The Resene Tree Frog front door is for Amber – her favourite colour is green.
The painting is a work in progress as budget allows. It is a start and it sure has made a difference. All the neighbours and whānau have said that is brightens up the street. Eventually flowers will be painted up the sills to make it a bit more creative. For now, this is it. And it is perfect!
Thanks to Amber.
