The rebuild is continuing to bring energy into Christchurch. The eclectic mix of heritage and modern architecture, exquisite eateries and bustling centre is exciting and is influencing the way we decorate our homes, inside and out.

Greens are continuing to flourish, with sage, olive and emerald greens proving to be very popular. Resene Tana and Resene Half Linen pair beautifully with variants of Resene Tapa while deep, sophisticated emeralds such as Resene Atlas are adding power to statement walls.


A Blue for Every Occasion

Soft grey blues with a blend of green, like Resene Duck Egg Blue, or Resene Half Emerge used with soft sand tones give a relaxed seaside feel. Deep moody blues are rich and sophisticated, framing a beautiful view through a window – try Resene Indian Ink or Resene Dark Side.

Easy classic blues, like Resene Breeze or Resene Half Dusted Blue, teamed with a vintage white and pretty sorbet shades are comforting and inviting.

Surprise pops of bright blue in Resene Endeavour or Resene Tomorrow add an impact and demand attention, but use sparingly!

For Cape Cod blues try Resene Periglacial Blue or Resene Madison teamed with chalky whites and natural textures for a luxury coastal retreat.
