Fancy floorwork

The new home of Lloyd Cairns has been beautifully finished in Resene Sisal throughout the interior with accents of Resene Shark on all internal doors and Resene Hero in the internal stairway area. Another popular deeper neutral, Resene Papier Mache, was used in the kitchen and dining area for a stylish modern finish.

As an economy measure, some leftover Resene Sisal and Resene Solitaire were blended together with dabs of Resene Papier Mache and used to paint the concrete floor. This unique floor finish was overcoated with a coat of clear waterborne polyurethane to protect the finish. The finished floor has a unique soft appearance that brings all parts of the home together.
