Beige be gone

Moving into a five year old home, the Kelly family knew instantly that colour was needed! Every wall surface had been wallpapered in the same beige tone making the atmosphere somewhat boring.


Keen to create a magical bedroom for their daughter, a pink meets purple meets fairy theme was concocted. Resene Shocking was combined with Resene Perfume. Just to be sure they tried a testpot of each and were so delighted that they were back purchasing enough paint for the whole room two hours later. A border of dancing fairies completes the magical look, providing the perfect blend from pink to purple.

Best of all the work was complete in time for the all important third birthday, giving the Kelly family something a little extra to celebrate.
