Dressing for the seasons


From the Resene colour inspiration – latest looks gallery

Some paint colours are just made for flexibility. White is one of them, and black and charcoal are others. We took Resene Nocturnal, a black-charcoal, and teamed it with other Resene colours to show how it can be transformed for four seasonal looks.

You can opt for small or large changes – even just a change of accessories can be enough to welcome in the new season.


Autumn

A neutral and natural scheme using a monochromatic backdrop and shots of warm terracotta gives this room a welcoming autumnal feel.

Autumn mood board Mood board: Background in Resene Double Alabaster, A4 drawdown swatches in Resene Nocturnal, Resene Felix, Resene Moroccan Spice and Resene Miso. Resene Bounty testpot, and detailing on macramé hanging picked out in Resene Moroccan Spice.

Texture is a key element with a macramé wall hanging with a pattern picked out in paint – Resene Moroccan Spice.

A handy desk area sits to one side with a chair also painted in Resene Moroccan Spice, while the coat stand is in Resene Bounty, and the plant pots are in Resene Felix and Resene Miso. The rear wall is in Resene Nocturnal and the side wall is in Resene Double Alabaster.

Winter

The rich traditional tones of jade green and red help create a moody luxe room when teamed with the charcoal wall and some early Hollywood-style accessories. An Art Deco style drinks trolley is painted in lavender Resene Marionette to lighten the mood and add a dash of fun.

Spring

Soft, gelato shades suit the sweet country style used for this room where old crates are used as coffee tables and painted in one coat for a rustic look in Resene Sazerac and Resene Cut Glass.

Summer

The typical kiwi bach was the inspiration for this room, using a mix of colours from soft sea blue to bright primary colours like yellow and cobalt blue to represent the way bach interiors are often an organic collection of clashing pieces and colour.
