opposites attract

From Habitat magazine - issue 11

Our winning laundry sits at either end of the colour spectrum with black and white.


The winner of the Electrolux/Resene laundry competition, Alice Domett Doyle of Wellington, chose an eco-friendly solution and used black, white (Resene Alabaster) and metallic silver paint (Resene Atom).

The walls are adorned with stencils of clothes hanging on a line, and the front of the tub has Resene Blackboard Paint to keep the kids amused or to bear this week’s poem. Flax kites hang from the walls for pegs and gardening items that need transporting, and the light has a fun shade. And, of course, pride of place goes to the new washing machine and dryer from Electrolux.

Carter Holt Harvey Products also chipped in with some free Bestwood Melamine in Mist Grey to complete the look.
