A deft choice of colours brings out the best in a project – but as well as getting the tones just right, you have to consider the context for their use and application time.
For this home, Parsonson Architects selected Resene paints for exterior accents to bring life to the subdued palette dictated by the rules of the subdivision.
For the kitchen cabinetry, a balanced, playful mix of Resene Crisp Green; Resene Carrara – an off-white cream; Resene Boulevard – a grey-blue; and Resene Half Delta – a silt grey – creates a pleasing effect.
The kitchen is finished in Resene’s next generation Resene Lustacryl range. This is an advanced waterborne, semi-gloss acrylic, ideal for areas traditionally reserved for solvent-borne enamels – that is, surfaces subjected to daily knocks and scrapes, or high moisture content in the air, such as in the bathroom, kitchen, laundry or on windows, doors or trims.
As well as offering an extremely hard-wearing surface, Resene Lustacryl is quick drying, low odour, Environmental Choice approved and easy to clean up in water.
This home project won two Resene Total Colour Awards, including the Resene Total Colour Residential Interior Award.
