Whether you want to be bold and daring, or a little more subdued with your decor, there's nothing like a new coat of paint to give your home a facelift.

Resene colour consultants can tell you exactly how different shades will change the look and feel of a room. For example, warm red tones can be theatrical and sensuous they are also known to stimulate conversation, which makes them well suited to formal dining areas. Conversely, cool blues and greens have a refreshing, calming influence.

Karen Warman, Resene marketing manager, says Environmental Choice-approved Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen is recommended for large broadwall areas.

"As a waterborne enamel, Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen is also tough, durable and washable. In critical light areas, its reduced side sheen will minimise surface imperfections, so it is frequently specified for renovation projects."

To help you choose the best colours for your project, Resene has released The Range 2011/12, a fandeck of more than 160 fashion shades for 2011 and beyond. To help you with white and neutral shades, Resene has also produced The Range Whites & Neutrals fandeck.
