Inflatable Game Centre

From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery

The inspiration was a combination of the concept, the play equipment and the wonderful large space, which allowed a vibrant use of colour.

The architectural details stood at attention and fitted in perfectly for using colour.

The equipment striped in red, yellow and green determined the interior colour scheme and made the colour choices for the branding obvious... and it also made sense to continue the stripe as a theme.

The key was to get the balance and proportion of colour right.

I chose predominantly green to enforce a sense of balance, health and a natural playful environment. Less of the red was used but enough to give warmth and energy. The yellow-orange, an uplifting colour, lightens the scheme but is also suggestive of a friendly social environment.

Furniture and fittings were selected in blacks and charcoals to ground the space as well as give a frame and backdrop for the more vibrant colours. A woodgrain laminate was chosen to soften the harshness of the charcoal.

Colours used: Resene Bullseye, Resene Limeade, Resene Supernova.

Interior Designer: Debbie Abercrombie
