World of contrasts

From the Resene/Your Home and Garden Colour Home Awards Competition - First finalist 2018/19

The first finalist of the Resene Colour Home Awards drew creative inspiration from her family’s hobbies and passions.

‘Inspired by the family’s love of riding on motorcycles and in four-wheel drives’

Jessica Cameron used Resene paints to add personality throughout her home, from a monochrome statement in her living room to creative themes in her kids’ bedrooms.

Son Brody’s room is inspired by the family’s love of riding on motorcycles and in four-wheel drives. Jessica used a base of Resene Black White and traced tyre tracks onto the wall in Resene All Black, then painted trees on in Resene Oxygen, Resene Subzero, Resene Stack and Resene All Black.

Daughter Honor’s room, meanwhile, was given the princess treatment in colours such as Resene Ballerina and Resene Unicorn.

In Jessica’s living and dining room, thick horizontal stripes in Resene Black White and Resene All Black create drama and set the scene for sophisticated entertaining.
