The first 2019 Resene Colour Home Awards finalist revealed

Jessica Cameron used Resene paints to add personality throughout her home, from a monochrome statement in her living room to creative themes in her kids’ bedrooms.

In Jessica’s living and dining room, thick horizontal stripes in Resene ‘Black White’ and Resene ‘All Black’ create drama and set the scene for sophisticated entertaining.

Son Brody’s room is inspired by the family’s love of riding on motorcycles and in four-wheel drives. Jessica used a base of Resene ‘Black White’ and traced tyre tracks onto the wall in Resene ‘All Black’, then painted trees on in Resene ‘Oxygen’, Resene ‘Subzero’, Resene ‘Stack’ and Resene ‘All Black’.

Daughter Honor’s room, meanwhile, was given the princess treatment in colours such as Resene ‘Ballerina’ and Resene ‘Unicorn’.
