Brand new

A brand new home requires the right colours to set it off and with this in mind Rebecca was placed in charge of selecting the right colours to do their new home justice. A picture of each room of the house was drawn onto a separate sheet of paper so they could be painted with testpots to visualise what they would look like once finished.

Using this as the base they selected Resene Texas Rose for the living and kitchen areas. The macrocarpa Church style ceiling was offset with Resene Mexican Red in the dining room and hallway, all coming together nicely for an earthy look.

The master bedroom was painted in deep Resene Paua. Children's bedrooms were painted in Resene Sushi, one with Resene Daisy Bush on the ceiling and trim and the other with Resene Shiraz on the ceilings and trim.

Dining area


The last touches of paint were in the bathroom and laundry, both painted Resene Malibu Blue for a fresh clean atmosphere.
