The palette includes Resene Indian Ink on a wall beside the stairs. This is a blackened blue a colour reminiscent of a night sky without moonlight. Another bold shade, Resene Kaitoke Green, features on the walls on the upper level of the house. Resene describes this colour as a bold, bushwalk green.

Resene Oilskin, a more subdued shade, was specified for the master bedroom. Terry Hogg says this colour was chosen to create a rich, masculine ambience.
