go island style

From Habitat magazine - issue 25

Entertain with hot tropical colour.

Add sizzle to your outdoor dining with saturated fiery shades of orange, ochre and yellow. Ultimately adaptable, these types of colours can be used in a myriad of styles from a mid-west desert feel to this contemporary Pacifica look. Resene Rumour Has It is used on the wall; orange can be very intense but this colour has a muted 'burnt' edge that makes it particularly easy to be with. In the same 'hot' colour vein, the stools are in Resene Aloha, Resene Malarkey and Resene Celebrate, while the table is in soothing coffee bean Resene Sambuca. A side fence is made of bamboo panels, and painted in the classic Resene Pearl Lusta.

A random length 'deck mat' is made of pine planks stained in Resene Woodsman Banjul. Add some basketry accessories (painted in Resene Ruby Tuesday and Resene Celebrate), some fruit and palm leaves, then sit back and enjoy the day.
