Devonport Residence


Located in the heart of Devonport this apartment was once grey, heavy and dull. The brief was to create a fresh vibrant space in which to hang the client’s art collection, and to integrate seamlessly with the new alfresco courtyard.

Throughout the client’s art collection was a prominence of a variety of green tones. In order to unite the space, a green, Resene Poprock, was selected as the accent colour. Resene Poprock’s fresh lemony green colour worked perfectly and appealed to the client. And was used on the custom designed entertainment/display unit and as a splashback in the new kitchen.

The art gallery walls were painted Resene SpaceCote tinted to Resene Alabaster throughout complemented with white Resene Ceiling Paint. Resene Double Alabaster was used on the kitchen cabinetry, adding a slight contrast to this functional space. The parquet floors that had yellowed and darkened over time were stripped and whitewashed to complement the Resene Alabaster walls.

All the soft furniture was custom made to complement the Resene Poprock accent and made in New Zealand. The rug also incorporating this accent colour was custom designed and made with 100% NZ wool.

The space is calming, inviting and fresh. It fulfils the brief outlined by the client and links the interior to the exterior space. Through the use of colour this living space is cohesive and enjoyable.
