b'-dyalternative solutionsunny and welcominga blue and yellow theme inspired by natureResene Colour Consultant Brenda Ngatai suggests an alternative scheme:This look connects the natural elements of water, sun and air and transforms the backyard into an urban sanctuary with native plants and animal life. The colour palette is classic blue and yellow, with blue furnishings and a blue birdbath and walls in Resene Weathered Yellow from the Karen Walker Paints collection. The accents of black including the stacker-style joinery ground the look and give a sense of balance to the aesthetics. Native plants, including kwhai, not only look beautiful but can feed birds such as t, bellbird/korimako and kerer. A custom-built fish tank brings in aquatic life. The overall feeling is relaxed and comfortablethe hope is to lift the spirits and give a sense of freedom.email brenda.ngatai@resene.co.nz web www.resene.com/colourconsultation Resene Black WhiteWonboyn Pendant LightFreedom Furniture www.freedomfurniture.co.nz0800 469 327 Resene LivingCollection CushionBriscoeswww.briscoes.co.nz0800 274 726ReseneHalf White PointerResene Kiri SideboardAviator Hunter Furniture www.furniture.co.nz 0800 777 807 Evie Rocking Chair (PI) Dapple NaturalCode 24100939 Brand Eviebefore Colour Evie Rocking Chair GTIN 24100939Not availableRange Evie Size (PI)Created Freedom Furniture Style Rocking Chair18 Dec 2018Description Evie Rocking Chair (PI) Dapple Natural Status activewww.freedomfurniture.co.nzDimension Not available Type Furniture Resene Volume 0800 469 327 Weight 25 Pirate Gold0.78Categories Fabric Upholstery Business Groups [empty]Occasional Armchair FabricAbove: Brenda used Resene Weathered Yellow paired with a Resene Black WhiteResene ceiling and exterior to create a warm, light space.
