Having a great view doesn't mean you have to sacrifice colour on the interior of your home.

Natalia and James Harrington of Hybrid Homes, the owners of this new house, have the best of both worlds. In addition to the expansive views from their house, they have incorporated pops of colour on the interior, with Resene paints.

The backpainted glass splashback in the kitchen features Resene Tweet, a bold yellow-green that Resene describes as "reckless and bound to get a response".

This is calmed by Resene Sea Fog, a neutral tone that features on kitchen walls, cabinetry, ceiling, trim and doors.

Colour reappears in the family room beside the kitchen. This is painted in Resene Hermitage, "a stony blue-green teeming with unusual watery influences".

Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen and Resene Zylone Low Sheen are recommended for broadwalls such as these. Both these paints are low VOC and Environmental Choice-approved, which is in keeping with the Harringtons' wish to make the home as eco friendly as possible.
