Bold colour choices inject personality and fun into every corner of this lively family home. See why its our sixth 2021 Resene Colour Home Awards finalist
Colour choice can often be a tricky decision, but Philippa Masoe finds it intuitive. When asked why she picked the range of whites, burnt oranges, slate greys and dark blues for her home, she says simply, “Because I liked them.”
“I like the idea of a room having an identity, and these colours give each room that,” she says. Her favourite colour is Resene Sante Fe, chosen for the entrance thanks to the colour inspiration from a pair of nude coloured Menu salt and pepper grinders. “It’s warm and welcoming and makes you feel relaxed as soon as you walk through the front door.”
Resene Black White appears all throughout the house alongside Resene Atlas in the main bedroom, Resene Licorice in the spare bedroom, Resene Tuna in Amelia’s room and Resene Wedgewood in the boys’ room.
Colour choice might come naturally to Philippa, but convincing Amelia that the elegant grey of Resene Tuna was the right choice for her room, was a feat in itself.
“She didn’t like the idea of a dark wall and ceiling. I had to convince her that we’d put heaps of fun colours all around the room and now she loves it. We can mix and match anything in there.”
