Residential Interior Award Winner
Seel Residence


The alterations and addition to this home completely transformed the interior into light open spaces. To capitalise on this a stunning Harlequin wallpaper called Anoushka Bella Stripe was chosen giving a striking palette of colours to base the interior colour scheme on. This wallpaper was placed in the entrance and hallway to set the scene and to draw people into the home.

Resene Zylone Sheen tinted to Resene Half Villa White is the main interior wall colour complemented by Resene Eighth Pearl Lusta on ceilings. The two bathrooms were also painted in Resene Half Villa White tinted into Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel as was the wooden joinery to link it in with the joinery of the new addition.

To balance the bold entrance and hallway wallpaper, Resene Jigsaw was chosen as a fun and lively colour in the adjoining dining room and echoed in the glass mosaic splashback in the kitchen.

The master bedroom also features a wallpaper with a striking yellow green background colour and metallic paisley overlaid print, the perfect contrast to Resene Half Villa White on adjacent walls. The last paint colour to be added was in their young son’s bedroom. Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen tinted to Resene Kombi was chosen as an enduring product and colour to take the young boy through the years and to set the scene for a bold striped fabric at the window and a bright and colourful bed cover.
