Hot hot hot

Some might say Karen has an obsession for Resene Hot Chile. It all started in the bathroom, where after living with a boring 1970s brown for years, they wanted to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. A new spa, false white tiles, Rimu panelling and Resene Hot Chile - perfect!


Then another project was born - this time outside in the form of an outdoor entertainment area, complete with a feature wall. Many colours were considered but didn't fit the bill of a colour that would glow in the evening with ambience in the firelight and surrounding spotlights, but would complement the area in the daytime. Once again, Resene Hot Chile was the best option.

Leftover paint was the perfect excuse to paint yet one more spot in the favoured colour. This time it found itself in the garage as a feature wall background to a room themed as USA/70s complete with jukebox and dance floor.
