Goodall apartment

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery

The brief for this apartment refurbishment was to redefine the existing spaces, to bring a feeling of light into the dining/kitchen/sitting area.

The entry, gallery and lounge areas that connect to this space were all to be repainted. The new blonded oak timber flooring would link all these areas.

Modern apartment kitchen

The client owned furniture and art from a previously owned Villa, which allowed an eclectic mix of style and added interest and layers to this new scheme. Resene Black White was used to define the new Poggenpohl kitchen, with its mix of burnt orange and blonded timber cabinetry with polished black benchtop. Resene Quarter Ash softened this effect in the dining/sitting area, and sun floods in here making the new window seat a welcome place to take ‘time-out’. The soft furnishings in this area match our colour palette of Resene Quarter Ash, Resene Half Friar Grey and Resene Double Tea.

Modern neutral hallway

The gallery space is an internal space with diffused light from an overhead skylight. The bold hue of Resene Double Napa adds warmth and depth to this space, and acts as a backdrop to antique furniture and art collected by the client over many years.

Modern and elegant hallway
Apartment furnishings

The entry to this apartment is via a lift that opens into an entry lobby painted in Resene Double Tea. From this area you catch a glimpse through the gallery to the sitting area where the afternoon sun floods in, and you are drawn through the space to the light.
