Get up on this

These ‘It’ shades have really got us talking and we can’t help but think you’re going to love them too. There’s a look for every  aesthetic – what’s your jam?

In association with Resene.

Desert menu

Take the rough with the smooth to create a perfectly imperfect melting pot
of texture, warm neutrals and rust with a hint of laid-back ’70s glam.

GET THE LOOK Texture’s where it’s at this winter and a great way to spice up a pared- back paint scheme. We used Resene Sandtex Standard tinted to Resene Swirl for a contemporary take on 1970s-style drywall.

Into the woods

The lush botanical greens of yesteryear play nice with strong geometric forms.
Offset by the richness of stained timber flooring, they draw you in and hold you tight.

GET THE LOOK Dark wooden floors are undeniably sophisticated and bring an element of maturity to a space. We stained pine boards with a light coat of Resene Colorwood in Resene Dark Ebony, left on for about three minutes (the longer you leave it, the darker the finish).
