b'colour crazeRobyn Renouf has never been scared of bold colour, as her Kapiti bach shows only too well. N estled into a sleepy Paekakariki street on the Kapiti coast is a little cottage with a big attitude. The 1930s bach stands defiant against the slightest whiff of monochromatic paint schemes. Unassuming from the road, its interior is swathed in blues, golds and yellows and filled with colourful accessories, furniture and original art. Owner Robyn Renouf has been a firm believer in the bold use of colour for many years. Colour is exhilarating, she says. It makes you want to get up in the morning.
