THE LOOK These Resene paints translate the carefree feel of bright, new-season, New Zealand-designed sartorial separates into sleep and living spaces that team greens with elegant, grounding neutrals we’ve offset with pops of pink — you could use Resene Drop Dead Gorgeous.

THE LOOK Warming, reassuring, welcoming sugar and spice shades bring au courant cosiness to these inviting scenes — and your get-ups. Such colours lend themselves well to rooms that celebrate natural materials, tactile textiles, handmade shapes and a level of comfort kept sophisticated through the use of just a few items judiciously arranged.
STYLIST’S TIP Paint is great for highlighting architectural details. Working with painter’s tape (available at Resene ColorShops) to keep our lines clean, we coated our wall with lighter Resene Meringue at the top and heavier Resene Epitome at the bottom, separated by a bold stroke of Resene Black to accent the edge of the ledge.

THE LOOK Just like wearing clothing with natty design details or a bold pattern, taking a considered risk with paint can really pay off. These pastel tones are a daily pleasure in a dining space that expertly combines dark and light while dishing up intriguing forms alongside practical functions.
