Create the perfect winter hideout with this Resene colour palette

Colour has a direct effect on our mood through different associations, warm colours evoke feelings of passion and comfort, whereas cool colours such as blue and green have the opposite effect. Red creates some of the most intense emotions, with connections to love it is the universal colour to signify strength, power and courage. As the temperature drops and we find ourselves at home more often, there’s no better time to reconsider our interior choices. We crave simmering fires, woody scents and a glass of medium bodied merlot, so why not have this reflected in the space we appreciate most? From deep reds to soft pinks, Resene has all the inspiration needed to create the perfect winter hideout. 

Bold accent walls in a playful yet deliberate fashion are a great way to breathe life into a space. Sometimes all a room needs is a sprinkling of something a bit extra and Resene SpaceCote Persian Red fits the brief. If an accent wall isn’t quite right, even just a hint of the hue, be it a reading nook, the exterior of your fireplace or a door frame, can work wonders. 

Don’t estimate the power of looking down, painting your floors can save on cost yet totally transform a room. Turn your living area into a Parisian jazz club by pulling a shade like Resene SpaceCote Rebel from the walls to the floors and embrace the punchy potential. 

If you want to evoke a feeling of warmth but red is a little too bold, balance colder interior tones with a softer paint option such as pink. There’s no question that pink can be discordant for the home, it's all down to the shade. Think of it as an alternative to white, a hue like Resene SpaceCote Coral Tree that balances warmth, comfort and richness without making too much noise. 

All above paint colours mentioned are available from RESENE COLORSHOPS.
