From the Resene News – issue 4/2006

At peace - Olsens Funerals

A third generation family business, Olsens has been operating since 1944 and is one of the few Australian privately owned and operated companies in the funeral services industry. 

Olsens Funerals

Working in an industry that demands a professionalism yet caring approach, also demands that the buildings are well maintained and the colour scheme selected is appropriate and suitably subdued. Bearing this in mind, the Olsens Funerals on Old Princes Highway in Sydney was redecorated using Resene Lumbersider satin acrylic tinted to Resene Gargoyle (strong sand beige) and Resene Super Gloss tinted to Resene Double Mondo (dense brown) on timber and metal windows and doors. 

Both popular neutral hues combine to reinforce the professionalism of the services within.
