Habitat plus - Free spirit

Soaring and creative, the Free Spirit personality likes a home that never stops still.

There will be a stunning and whimsical feature wall one year, and another quite different one in the same spot next year.

Playfulness leads this look with unusual combinations of colour, and an ever-artful approach to interiors. The Free Spirit loves to experiment. Resene testpots are their best friend. A Free Spirit will upcycle furniture, find a new way to decorate old vases, use found objects like river stones and twigs as interior accessories, and have an innate sense of what looks good.

But most of all, Free Spirits will have fun with their interiors and never take things too seriously.

Colours to try: Resene Spring Rain, Resene Zephyr, Resene Wild Thing, Resene Sunglo, Resene Twilight.

You may also feel at home as a Global Traveller, Arty Retro or Vintage Nostalgic.
