Resene Echo BlueNatural mood

Last year the Treacy family built a large home, incorporating two bed and breakfast rooms, overlooking a freshwater lake.

Surrounded by rural views and the everchanging moods of their lake and the hills, they wanted their colour scheme to reflect those moods and the planned gardens. While it was suggested that she use creams and magnolias, Judith was determined that neutrals were not for her.

She selected Resene Echo Blue for two bedrooms, which will reflect the lavender and blues from the garden, and Resene Neptune for one bedroom and the main bathroom (with French tub) for an underwater feel. The large foyer, hall, living room and dining area were finished in Resene Hathaway. The fourth bedroom, sitting room and breakfast room are finished in Resene Ashanti, a delightful soothing shade.

And her husband who wanted to play it safe with neutrals? He's amazed how each room runs beautifully into the next and the suggestion of neutrals has melted away.
