A great design will always address the principle needs of your home renovation.However, the magic may come in the form of more subtle nuances – for instance, the  choice of a beautiful paint surface. This home makeover by designer Donna Hunter reflects just such an attention to fine detail.

“The renovation of this modest 1880s fisherman’s cottage included a dramatic reinvention of the bathroom,” says Hunter.

The reworked bathroom includes a sculptural, freestanding bathtub, curved shower, wall-hung vanity, heated towel rail and underfloor heating – all with a modern twist, while still keeping the cottage look.

“To recreate the cottage’s era I started with patterned floor tiles. These were ideal for the aesthetic the homeowner wanted. I then selected Resene Bounty – a steely blue-grey, patinated for an aged look – for the upper walls. This colour also became the basis for the kitchen and laundry.”

The refined colour was specified in the Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom Range. This technologically advanced range combines the benefits of a rugged waterborne enamel with Resene’s proven anti-bacterial silver protection and paint life-extending Resene MoulDefender – both ideal pluses in a bathroom setting.
