This home has received some cool curve appeal during last year’s lockdown period. Take a tour to see why its our fourth 2021 Resene Colour Home Awards finalist
When New Zealand went into lockdown last year, event manager Jasmin Vallance found her work schedule drying up. To keep busy, she turned her attentions to the ’50s house she owns with her partner Matthew in Point England, Auckland.
“What started out as small DIY projects, such as painting vases turned into upcycling furniture, then soon enough I had a paint brush in my hand and was painting a black arch in our hallway,” she says. “Painting was an easy way for us to make over a space without spending too much.”
After painting the arch in the hallway with Resene Black, Jasmin used Resene Dust Storm to paint a floating circle on her bedroom wall. A giant half circle headboard was painted in the spare room using Resene Moccasin.
When Auckland’s second lockdown hit, Jasmin headed straight to her local Resene ColorShop and picked up a pot of Resene Flax to paint her lounge wall.
