Planning aheadResene Baltic Sea and Resene Tangerine

As the Davidson family's house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac and they are both art teachers they wanted to make a bold statement on the outside. They used Resene Baltic Sea as a base and then Resene Tangerine to give their house a punchy finish.

On the inside they chose a natural colour Resene Double Blanc for their open planned living area, hallway and garage complemented with Resene Eighth Blanc on all the trims and ceilings. In the kitchen they organised a glass splashback in Resene Maxwell Smart.

Knowing one day it would be a child's bedroom, the guest bedroom was finished in Resene Wasabi so that they could easily add red or pink accessories for a girl or cool blues and orange hues for a boy. In the nursery they chose Resene Riptide as the sea green is the perfect bright unisex colour. Baby Orlando arrived in September and just loves it.

Their bedroom and ensuite is painted in Karen Walker Heathered Grey as it matched beautifully to the already chosen feature wallpaper from Resene. Sticking with the Karen Walker range, their bathroom is in Karen Walker Robins Egg Blue and all of the doors throughout the house are coated in Karen Walker Taupe Grey.
