The colours were chosen to provide a reminder of the French provincial style and work well with the style of the house; strong colours but neutral enough that they set off the colours in the garden.
Seeking a stone colour for the walls and navigating through choices of greyed stone and yellower hues, Resene Lumbersider low sheen waterborne paint tinted to Resene Pale Oyster, provides a pleasing stone colour without being too cool or warm.
For the roof, a variety of non-standard roofing colours were tried but invariably New Denim Blue worked best with the rest of the colour scheme.
Initially for all the doors Resene Destiny was chosen but it didn’t work as well as hoped, so a stronger and darker colour was chosen, Resene Bunting, which looks fabulous with the walls and roof. Resene Destiny has been retained on the monopitch sleepout where it works well with the Resene Pale Oyster and doesn’t need to compete with the roof colour.
All the window surrounds are painted Resene Quarter Pearl Lusta, which gives a sharp, clean look to the house.
The house is set off with the plantings of lavender and white roses, which really make it feel like home, especially in the spring and summer when they are in full bloom.
