More than responding to our favourite colour choices, the right paint can have a dramatic effect on the mood of an interior.

The interior of this home by Donnell & Day Architecture is a case in point. The Resene colours were specified to link the house to the natural world. Sand, sea, sky and stone colours ensure the spaces flow together and help bring the outside in. Blue walls shift in hue in a similar way to how the sea changes tone through the day.

The pristine Resene Alabaster ceiling flows from inside to the outside verandah, blurring the boundary between room and garden. Colour accents feature where the neutral sandy brick or natural recycled wood are the predominant colours.

The hues for the children's rooms were chosen to offer a calming backdrop to their busy lives Resene Blumine in the boy's room and Resene Nepal in the girl's room. Resene Blue Bayoux lightens the space under the stairs while the white walls are in Resene Barely There. The flat and low sheen finishes Resene Zylone Sheen and Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen soften the light and colours for a natural effect.

The scheme won the Resene Total Colour Residential Interior Award. Judges said the colours are sensitive to the home's external environment, bringing elements indoors without overpowering the interior.
