Accentuating a room’s spaciousness or connecting to the wider environment can be as simple as choosing the right wall colour. And trusted New Zealand home builder GJ Gardner Homes knows this well.
This GJ Gardner Hamilton showhome features Resene paints throughout, and includes the use of a dramatic, dark tone in the main living area, says Hamilton’s general manager Glen Archer.
“We chose Resene Baltic Sea as a colour that would connect tonally with the green surroundings in this new subdivision – Rotokauri Rise – and also with the grey tones of the local ranges. At the same time, it provides a welcoming, cosy aesthetic in this area of the home that already draws in ample natural light,” says Archer.
Resene Alabaster – a near white with a light blackened edge – was specified on the ceilings of the home, while the trims and doors are in Resene Double House White. No two Resene whites are the same, of course, and the latter is a greyed white, shadowy and versatile.
“Paint is a really important finish for a home. Ensuring the balance of looking great and reducing maintenance is key for all our customers,” Archer says.
