As the existing home had elements of the 1930s, Yellowfox felt it was important to stay true to the era and incorporate an Art Deco theme, which is evident in the colour palette.
As the home is featuring many products, complementary textures and tones are used to ensure a streamlined and uncluttered look.
With entertaining a priority, integrating the kitchen with a living space was essential for a successful open plan design. Resene Half Fossil is the perfect colour to complement the timber features.
To enhance the Art Deco theme, Yellowfox has featured wallpapers in the style, one high contrast black and silver in the stairwell for maximum effect as it is a focal point from the entrance. The master bedroom has a combination of Resene Shady Lady and a Resene WallTrends 21889 lilac wallpaper. The powder room is tiled up to dado height with a secret splash of Resene Buffalo on the walls above.
To utilise Resene specialised products, we have used the Resene Write-on Wall Paint product over the top of Resene Enamacryl Metallic Infinity on the wardrobe door in the child’s bedroom, along with Resene Blackboard Paint on another wardrobe door.
The master ensuite had a painted back glass shower lining in Resene Electric to offset the pale Cararra wall tiles. All of these elements add to the elegance of this beautiful home.
With a modern palette and state of the art finishes, this old beauty has been transformed into a contemporary yet comfortable home.
