Rainbows end - Pelican Waters home

The end of the rainbow has long been the guardian of the elusive pot of gold. Destined never to find this dazzling source, Pelican Waters, Sunshine Coast is now home to a 'house of gold'.

Pelican Waters home

Coated in a style somewhat reminiscent of a gold nugget, the upmarket home features Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Gold Dust (metallic gold) on the exterior complemented by a roof coated in Resene Hi-Glo tinted to Resene Aluminium (metallic silver).

No matter what the weather, this home is equally at ease on sun filled days with rays of light dancing on the metallic flake finishes or on rainy days set against a backdrop of rainbows making one believe that perhaps the illusive pot of gold is closer to hand than expected.
