Glow up your home with sunny hues and golden tones

If the lockdowns have given us anything, it’s our newfound appreciation for our living space. If you’re looking to create a high-impact space straight out of a Pinterest board, colour is your ultimate weapon. As the weather continues to warm up, so does our palette with uplifting colours. From sunny hues and golden tones to deep earthy tones, Resene has all the inspiration we need to freshen up our sanctuary.

Rich hues of warm yellows, burnt oranges and rich browns do the job like no other when it comes to creating cosiness. Add a rich accent colour on one wall with Resene Cape Palliser and create a soft contrast with Resene China Ivory. Boost the design of your living area even further with a pop of colour on the floor. Resene Teak is a vibrant, warm brown that can give the illusion of a larger space while also drawing in natural sunlight.

Why settle on one colour when you can create this stunning striped wall? Combining different colours together can create an instant wow-factor that elevates your space to a whole new level. The key to choosing the perfect palette is choosing a range of different tones that complement each other. Here, the combination of earthy tones like Resene Teak, Resene Seaweed and Resene Cape Palliser match perfectly with rich warms like Resene Lemon Twist, Resene Tulip Tree and Resene Porsche. Make sure to add in subtle neutrals like Resene Mercury and Resene China Ivory to tie the whole design together.

Show your floors some love with a fun floor design. This unique paving floor has been splashed with golden hues and rich browns like Resene Teak, Resene Cape Palliser, Resene Lemon Twist and Resene Porsche, alongside neutrals like Resene Mercury.

The floors should be the main focal point so keep it simple on the walls. Opt of a rich statement colour on one wall with Resene Teak and a neutral tone on another with Resene China Ivory.
