Capturing the sense of grandeur of a regal Italian home can be as simple as choosing the correct architectural style and the right finishing touches.

This home, constructed by Malcolm J Lusby, features deep verandahs inspired by Italian-style homes and a high standard of fittings and finishes, says general manager David Chapman.

"Colour is central to a home's essence, and Resene Portland was chosen for the exterior for its eye-catching, formal tone," says Chapman. "For the interior, we chose Resene Coral to give the rooms a warm, welcoming feel."

To help select from Resene's extensive choice of colours, the company offers The Range, a selection of classic and contemporary hues, says marketing manager Karen Warman.
