From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery — 5 Dorset Road, Northbridge
To produce maximum impact within the budget, the exterior was coated with acrylic render and covered with Resene paints.
While wanting something different, the final look still had to be sympathetic to its surroundings – as well as complementing the existing architectural elements of the old house.
I chose Resene Earlybird as it reflected tones in both the terracotta tiles of the roof and soft stripes ingrained in the sandstone flagstones.
The colour changes amazingly during the course of the day – from blue to brown. Love it!
