Habitat plus - Eco warrior

With a yearning to tread lightly on the land, the Eco Warrior surrounds themselves in environmentally friendly products and energy efficient technologies.

Honest and simple materials like plywood, recycled timber, concrete, low VOC and no added VOC paint, clear natural-look coatings and unbleached fabrics keep the colour palette muted and the feel-good factor high. Personal and global health are the motivations; while aesthetics may take a back seat, Eco Warriors may strive to merge their philosophies with good looks. An Eco Warrior’s home will be a triumph of exhaustive research and a warm, healthy and cost-effective place to be.

Colours to try: Resene Quarter Parchment, Resene Twine, Resene Celery, Resene Bud, Resene Rock Salt and other wood stains, Resene Clover.

You may also feel at home as an Arty Retro, Architectural, Industrial Urban or Free Spirit.
