A tonal colour scheme is a sure-fire way to create a harmonious look, whether you're using spicy flavours or calming hues.

Beachy bliss

Beachy bliss colour scheme

 

Create a soothing beach-inspired setting with soft sea colours – crossover tones that are neither blue nor green. The wall is painted in Resene Kumutoto, the tongue-and-groove panelling in Resene Carefree and the floorboards colourwashed in Resene Paint Effects Medium mixed with Resene Escape.

Accessories: Lusty Lloyd Loom Eton chairs and Brighton table, both POA, painted in Resene Kandinsky, from Lusty's Lloyd Loom Furniture Group. Glass ball, bird, and polyresin whelk shell, from Bed Bath n' Table. Hurricane lamp, from Trade Aid. San Filipe glass jug, and short tumbler, from Citta Design.


Some like it hot

Red hot colour scheme

 

Highly saturated reds, oranges and bright colours make a setting that's both sizzling and exciting. This sort of colour scheme goes equally well with many exotic themes – Pacific, Spanish, Indian, Moroccan, South American and more. We painted some second-hand items then matched them with store-bought accessories and furniture.

The walls are Resene Whizz Bang, the floor is Resene Outrageous, the table is Resene April Sun, the bowl is Resene Pursuit, the yellow plate underneath is Resene Spotlight, the cup is Resene Galliano and the bamboo fruit platter is Resene Daredevil.

Accessories: David Trubridge Coral light in Resene West Side, and MoAD 'Alice in Wonderland' yellow dish, from Essenze. Mamasita Acapulco Chair, from The Design Foundry. Bamboo screen, from Trees Company. Dita bag, from Saben. Pumpkin jandals, from the Havaiana Showroom. Birdcage, from Redcurrent. Karen Walker Pegs sunglasses in fluoro.


A study in neutrals

Neutral colour scheme

 

Soft washed out neutrals tie together this study nook with its industrial vintage theme. The wall is Resene Rice Cake, the floor is Resene Paint Effects Medium mixed with Resene Half Haystack, the box is Resene Half Putty and the ampersand on top is Resene Half Alabaster.

Accessories: Thorndon Cream Lampshade, from Lighting Plus. Vintage chair, from The Design Foundry. Magazine stand, from Trees Company. Globe, and notebook, from Iko Iko. Ampersand, notebook, pencil cup, and pencils, wooden hand model, mail box, stapler, and flip clock, from Typo. Rug, from Trade Aid.
