Stonefields residential garden design

Stonefields, Auckland

This small outdoor living area was redesigned to include a standalone feature wall with a built-in gas fire to provide protection and privacy. The exterior wall design had to complement the existing architecture of the home and elements already in place in this space. Being such a small space the colour chosen for the wall was a very important design decision.

The bold, dark charcoal wall is painted with Resene Sonyx 101 in Resene Double Foundry creating a dramatic focal point in the space. A punchy contrast to the neutral house colour, Resene Double Foundry showcases the modern stainless steel fascia of the fireplace beautifully and complements the modern colours of the interior.

It also works in well with the honed, grey concrete courtyard and the colour palette of the neutral outdoor furniture.

The clients love it!
