Changing the colour of the walls is the easiest and most cost-effective way to transform an interior. And there's no reason why you can't be a little adventurous an accent wall is a good place to start.

Developer Gerry Wilkinson opted for a rich, warm accent wall for this home theatre room. Resene Volcano, from the Resene Multi-Finish collection, enlivens the neutral tones of the furnishings, and helps create an intimate theatre atmosphere. The colour is highlighted by white trim skirting boards, architraves and adjacent walls are painted in Resene Vista White, from the Resene The Range Whites & Neutrals fandeck.


The accent wall was painted in Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen, a tough, acrylic enamel, well suited to broadwall areas due to its durability and low sheen, which minimises surface imperfections.
