Transport yourself to exotic places.

Marrakesh, Rajasthan or Ankara – you could fool yourself into being anywhere with this eclectic, exotic scheme. Using the gorgeous Glamour wallpaper (code 404722) from Resene as a starting point for the colour scheme and as a feature wall to the left, the setting sparkles with rich blues and oranges, set against the quiet mysterious grey of a Resene Triple Rakaia wall. The floor is painted in Resene Transmission and the table base is in rich dusky orange, Resene Ayers Rock. Texture is everything – from the soft gleam of brass to the rich depths of velvet bedlinen. The day bed has a come-hither look, piled high with decadent velvet and linen throws, and plump cushions. This sort of scheme cries out for antiqued metallic finishes – a brass table top, an old silver teapot and a punched metal lamp. Finish it off with a glass votive stencilled in Resene Redemption Blue.

Lacy good looks

Give a plain glass votive or vase a new look with a simple lacy stencil effect. We used a cake stencil, available at your local kitchen supply store, and sponged on a coat of Resene Redemption Blue to create a whimsical look. Add a white pillar candle for an atmospheric addition to your exotic setting.
