Refresh Renovations Partner; Resene gives us the inside scoop on latest colour trends for NZ Homes, Read the full article to find out more!

home wall colour wheel

While it seems like our wall colours may last forever, the latest fashion colours for decorating continue to evolve.  Like your wardrobe, that doesn’t mean you have to abandon old favourites. Instead use the new trends as inspiration to keep your home’s colour scheme fresh – perhaps by adding a new feature wall or updating an old one.
To help you bring the trends into your home, Resene has a new The Range fashion colour fandeck with the latest fashion colours. Here’s a taste of some of the new trends:

Fade to grey and blue

Washed, weathered, subtle, smoky and shadowy. There’s a palette of pale blues and greys that seems to transcend the fashions, such as Resene Duck Egg Blue, Resene Half Dusted Blue or Resene Slipstream. Calming and soothing, these are colours remind us of cloudy skies, refreshing waters, icy slopes and delicate shells.

Pink’s progress

It has been the darling of recent times – millennial pink has appeared in all walks of life, but the sweeter truer shades of pink we’ve seen in recent years are morphing in two directions – to dusky peach/nudes, such as Resene Soulful, Resene Just Dance and Resene Sorbet, and to soft fresh lilacs, such as Resene Mozart.

Neutrals get earthy

After years of bedecking our homes in palest greys and hint-of-warmth greiges, the look for neutrals is heading back to those with a warm or brown base, such as Resene Double Ash, Resene Napa and Resene Earthen.

The dark side

Brooding and powerful – today’s darks are packed with personality. We’ve moved away from plain blacks to colours with more depth and interest, such as Resene Indian Ink, Resene Porter and Resene Dark Web. These are stormy, twisted colours that on the one hand can be brooding and torrid, but on the other hand can be comforting and enclosing.

Wallpaper keeps on rolling    

Wallpaper returned to our homes recently in a flurry of stylish designs and colour, and its presence shows no sign of abating. The range of styles and colours in the Resene Wallpaper Collection at Resene ColorShops seems endless, from lush tropical leaf designs, oversized mural styles and faux looks to whimsical botanicals, quirky graphics and luxe metallic finishes. There is something for every taste and every room.
