Winter’s tale

Good couples – with Resene, from Homestyle magazine

Some say it’s the actual worst, but we like to think of the rainy season as a good reason for some guilt-free downtime. All you need is a room that sets the mood.

Winter’s tale of colours

Touch points

Up the interest of an almost-white (Resene Sea Fog) / almost-black (Resene Gumboot) combo with the addition of textural elements. We lightly coated chipboard with Resene Sea Fog to create a headboard, then met our paint pairing in the middle with accents in shades of grey.

Floor: in Resene Lumbersider in Resene Gumboot, prepped with Resene primer/sealer and sealed with Resene Uracryl 402 Clear.
