Colour forecast with Resene, from Homestyle magazine

These It shades have really got us talking and we can’t help but think you’re going to love them too. There’s a look for every aesthetic – what’s your jam?

Desert menu

Take the rough with the smooth to create a perfectly imperfect melting pot of texture, warm neutrals and rust with a hint of laid-back 70s glam.

Get the look: Texture’s where it’s at this winter and a great way to spice up a pared- back paint scheme. We used Resene Sandtex Standard tinted to Resene Swirl for a contemporary take on 1970s-style drywall.

Into the woods

The lush botanical greens of yesteryear play nice with strong, geometric forms. Offset by the richness of stained timber flooring, they draw you in and hold you tight.

Get the look: Dark wooden floors are undeniably sophisticated and bring an element of maturity to a space. We stained pine boards with a light coat of Resene Colorwood in Resene Dark Ebony, left on for about three minutes (the longer you leave it, the darker the finish).

Doctors orders

An energising shot of colour underfoot will really lift your spirits. Team with simple styling that favours the handmade to keep the excitement in check.

Get the look: This optimistic turmeric-inspired shade, Resene Aloha, makes a statement you can’t ignore. Stick to a neutral palette for your walls and key furnishings so as not to overpower the senses.
