Coastal heritage

Dianne and Chris had a heritage theme top of mind when they established the Hokitika Heritage Lodge in 2004. The three guest rooms in the lodge are themed and named Gold, Jade and Heritage, with Resene colours used to reflect and complement those names.

The Gold room is painted in Resene Zylone Sheen tinted to Resene Chandelier and Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Papier Mache. The Jade room is finished in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Deep Teal, while the Heritage room is painted in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Kingfisher Blue and Resene Double Pearl Lusta.

Hokitika Heritage Lodge

To provide a rich warm dining experience, the dining room has been painted in Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Merlot and this colour has been carried through into the entrance to provide a warm welcoming feel on entry.

The kitchen began with Dianne wanting classic blue and white. An English country garden tile picture, fitting the heritage theme, was used as a splashback behind the cooking hob complemented by Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Lemon Grass on the walls. The colour sets off the white cabinetry and complements the tiles and benchtop.

Woodwork in Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Pearl Lusta and Resene Zylone Sheen tinted to Resene Popcorn completes the interior colour palette on the hall and stairwell, providing a restful neutral linking colour that feeds into the bolder colours used in the home.
