Resene Sunbaked is a timeless, weathered terracotta that embraces the heat of summer. Its spicy, rust hue pairs beautifully with the popular greenery trend, is full of warmth and class and is a great way to add energy to any space. Spruce up some tired shelving, add a pop of colour to your laundry ceiling or mask out some areas of your lounge and create a cosy reading nook.

Pair it with warm, creamy whites such as the classic Resene Spanish White or the fresh Resene Poured Milk for a timeless approach. It will also look beautiful paired with tonal colours such as Resene XOXO and Resene Love Me Do, or create a statement and contrast with the daring Resene Indian Ink.

Or for those wanting to try a little something different, Resene Sunbaked is a great colour to use when creating a special effect. Why not experiment with Resene FX Paint Effects and layer gentle apricots such as Resene Soulful, Resene Just Dance and Resene Shabby Chic for the ultimate sunset-inspired backdrop.

Other top terracotta hues to try… Resene Sante Fe, Resene Moccasin and Resene Raging Bull.
