Beautiful mine

Dulux® colour ambassador Alex Fulton shows how to turn an empty corner into your own private rest stop with a bench seat and some lush paint and textures.

In association with Dulux.

Create a breakout zone in an open-plan area using colour to delineate the space. We went for a layered scheme of green on green (Dulux Katikati and Dulux St Bathans) with earthy Dulux Mirimar and mustard Dulux Waihi as the anchor – all from the Dulux Colours of New Zealand® range.
