A child's dream


A move back to New Zealand from Australia inspired the Perry family to create their own piece of Australia in their own home. After buying many testpots, Mum Diane cleverly thought to paint a mural of Australia's surreal island, Bribie.

Patricia Collins, a family friend and avid artist, was enticed to create the vision in the bathroom working only with Resene testpots. After days and weeks of effort, the fantastic feature was finished, replicating a photo taken when the family visited Bribie.

Mural od Bribie Island

The creativity didn't stop there. The home includes a large garage, full of things that were seldom used. Three quarters of the garage was partitioned off giving room for an entrance hall for a favoured wrestling collection plus a large area where the children could relax, run around, have fun and leave the parents in peace. Patricia was called back into duty and this time created a camouflage effect in the now renamed 'bunker', with an entrance hall in Resene Shuttle Grey.

  • An extensive range of colours were used to create both features:
    Bathroom - Resene Resolution Blue, Resene Anakiwa, Resene Nero, Resene Kaitoke Green, Resene Grasshopper, Resene Honey Flower, Resene Mantle, Resene Prim, Resene Dark Rum, Resene Twilight Blue, Resene Magnolia and Resene Witch Haze.
  • Bunker - Resene Camouflage, Resene Kaitoke Green, Resene Nero, Resene Persian Plum, Resene Dark Rum, Resene Brown Derby, Resene Space Shuttle, Resene Shuttle Grey and Resene Prim.
