Many of the best holiday homes are designed with simplicity in mind. But whether this is reflected in a neutral colour palette or something more vibrant, there's no doubt your choice of paint colour will have a direct bearing on the ambience of your home.

Your paint choice will also impact in other ways a durable surface will pay off in terms of easy maintenance, which is essential for a holiday home.


Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen is an Environmental Choice-approved paint just as well suited to older homes as new ones. The waterborne enamel is tough, durable and washable. And, in critical light areas, its reduced side sheen will minimise any surface imperfections.

This paint is available in the entire spectrum of hues in the Resene Total Colour System. But if that colour selection seems overwhelming, Resene has collated more than 150 of the most popular shades in The Range fandeck. You can also refer to the Resene Whites & Neutrals fandeck, which presents a collection of these tones. Variations in strength make it easy to choose a tonal colour scheme.
