To enhance the light, open interior spaces and create a crisp, modern aesthetic, the living areas in the house feature a backdrop of predominantly white walls.

Colours from the Resene Total Colour System Multi-Finish range were used both inside and on the exterior of the home. In the atrium, a feature wall of Resene Chelsea Cucumber helps to define this large space and create a visual focal point.

Feature walls are still a very popular way to add colour to a space, says Resene's marketing manager, Karen Warman.

"Greens have become the new neutrals. Green can be a grounding, optimistic colour," she says.
