Everyone needs to escape now and then, which helps explains the rise in the number of luxury lodges and homestays. But while such retreats are often located in idyllic settings, their interiors also need to complement the beauty of the surroundings.

Villa Zingara, a lodge and vineyard on the Cardrona Terrace Estate near Wanaka, is a good example. To create a dynamic interior, the 25cm-thick walls are painted in a colourful array of Resene paints.

From the warm hues of Resene Canterbury Clay in the atrium and Resene Manuka Honey in the dining room, to the brighter shades of Resene Raspberry in the bar and Resene Hot Chile in the kitchen, the public areas in the lodge have an inviting ambience.

The kitchen was painted with Resene Zylone SpaceCote a low-sheen,waterborne paint that provides a tough, durable, enamel-like finish, well suited to kitchens and other wet areas. In critical light areas, the paint's reduced side sheen will minimise the appearance of surface imperfections. The paint also has the benefits of low odour and easy clean-up.
