Habitat plus - Rescue


Forget recycling, think rescuing, upcycling and sharing.

Look at your old treasures through a new lens and see the endless possibilities. Today’s interiors are not about perfection. They’re about seeking the handmade, seeing the beauty in uniqueness and that 'flaws' can be memorable and beautiful.

Take a walk down memory lane and feel the nostalgia in a single piece of furniture or accessory. Share your finds with others. Our concept of ownership is changing as we revel in a sense of community. We repurpose objects as well as spaces, as our families grow and spread. We can bring the memories with us, reinvented for today and tomorrow.

Top tip
Cherish your treasures with paint that will keep your memories alive. Use Resene Enamacryl for a tough gloss finish, Resene Lustacryl for a semi-gloss sheen, or Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen or Flat for a soft chalky finish.
