Smith McCoy Alford


Smith McCoy Alford is a Chartered Accountancy & Business Advisory firm based in Christchurch with a second office in Oamaru.

Victoria Street is one of Christchurch’s best-known designer streets and is making a comeback after the earthquakes. People are drinking coffee, shopping, getting their hair cut and going about their day’s work in one of the office buildings.

Smith McCoy Alfords Christchurch office survived the earthquakes and has since been earthquake strengthened. It seemed like the ideal time to revamp the interior colour scheme.

The brief was to give the entire office a tidy up and bring more contemporary and warmer colours into play. The existing colour scheme was a combination of outdated shades of green, red, orange, yellow, blue and purple. After consulting with the client colours were selected from the Resene The Range Whites & Neutrals fandeck.

Resene Bison Hide was selected in various strengths including Double and Half with Quarter used as a trim colour. The white and black feature wallpaper Indochine 21645 used in the client waiting area was chosen for its impact against the neutral Resene Bison Hide backdrop. The entry door into the client waiting/ reception area was painted a glossy Resene Black with a Resene White frame. Red accessories were suggested for contrast against the neutral background.

The carpet throughout the entire office was replaced as was the outdated furniture in the client waiting area and boardroom. All other furniture was successfully incorporated into the new look.
