b'alternative solutionserene in sagesage greens make a stylish statementResene colour specialist Brooke Calvert suggests this alternative scheme:I wanted this open plan living, dining and kitchen space to feel relaxing and a place where you could feel at home. The linen sofas, luxurious sheepskin elements and natural timbers have been used to soften the space and create a feeling of calm. Pops of brass have been brought in through the tapware and floor lamp to add a touch of glam. The beautiful coral pink on the far back wall in Resene Just Dance is echoed through the soapstone table piece and kitchen accessories, while the fresh and warm white walls in Resene Quarter Rice Cake work to enhance the timber tones throughout the space, including the floor finished in Resene Colorwood Whitewash. Sage green tiles on the splashback draw your eye in, which then moves to the bench seat, bringing a little extra dramawhich is what its all about!phone 027 215 6949 email brooke.calvert@resene.co.nzResene HavenProtea PrintFather Rabbit www.fatherrabbit.com09 360 2573Resene Just DanceMeir Kitchen Gooseneck MixerResene Colorwood WhitewashThe Kitchen Hubwww.thekitchenhub.co.nz0800 404 503 Benmore Bench Seatbefore Ico Traders Piastrella Collection Olive MixAbove: Brooke kept the main elements of the open planillustrationwww.icotraders.co.nzkitchen, dining and living area neutral but incorporated on trendMalcolm White 027 540 6600 Tile SpaceResenewww.tiles.co.nzterracotta, sage and blush through the back accent wall inEighth Rice Cake 09 270 8790Resene Just Dance, the splashback and other small accessories.
