Warkworth dream

Jack and Lynn had always longed to live in the country and loved old villa style homes. Combining the two they decided to build a new replica villa in Warkworth, and after much searching and nearly giving up, they found a builder who could build them just what they wanted.

They now have all aspects of an old villa - the beautiful kauri floors, high studs, wraparound verandahs, leadlight windows and country style kitchen. To top it off they were able to paint the house inside in and out in whichever Resene colours took their fancy.

Resene Malta and Resene Parchment

The outside of the house is finished in Resene Malta and Resene Parchment to give a very natural and welcoming appearance.

Resene Burning Sand features in the hall and lounge

The interior was painted in various colours. Resene Burning Sand features in the hall and lounge for a lovely warm ambience. The kitchen and dining are painted in Resene Bermuda Grey complemented by doors and cabinetry in Resene Parchment, which lends a rustic country atmosphere to the area.

The kitchen and dining are painted in Resene Bermuda Grey

With each bedroom destined to have its own theme, each has been painted in its own colour: Resene Rose for the main bedroom and ensuite bathroom, Resene Coral for the second bedroom, Resene Green Mist for the third bedroom and Resene Heather for the fourth bedroom.



The guest bedroom and toilet have been finished in Resene Powder Blue from the Karen Walker collection.

Delighted with the results, they hope to spend many happy years in their new traditional home.
