Resene Total Colour Awards 2021 winners

Captivating colour that beautifully complements the classical architecture wins the Public Trust Building the top colour award in the Resene Total Colour Awards 2021.

In Resene's 75th birthday year, the latest Resene Total Colour Awards have been a true celebration of all things colour. From neutral to bright, pastel to weathered, each winner's palette is distinctively unique in hue, yet all share an excellence in colour selection.

As so many projects have been delayed over the last 18 months, there was a pronounced shift to making the most of what already exists, with many older projects lovingly brought to life with painstaking attention to detail, care and fresh coats of new Resene colour.

Resene has a long history of colour and today's colour range of thousands of hues is a far cry from the handful that was available when Resene started 75 years ago. The Resene Total Colour Awards were launched to encourage and celebrate excellent and creative use of colour; to showcase striking colour palettes and combinations and provide fresh inspiration.

Awards have been given for the best colour use in: Residential Exterior, Residential Interior, Commercial Exterior, Commercial Interior Office, Commercial Interior Shared Space, Commercial Interior Public + Retail Space, Community, Installation - Experiential - Product, Education, Neutrals, Rising Star and Lifetime Achievement, with the Colour Master Nightingale Award for the best overall colour use.
