Welcome – Now that we have started settling into a 'new normal', the time is ripe to remedy the spaces around your home that are no longer resonating with your wants or needs.
If your blank walls are looking boring, things are feeling stale or your design no longer meets you and your family’s priorities, aligning your decorating with your personality, lifestyle and desires has never been more achievable. Not only is it easier to get the necessary supplies, furniture or décor to transform your home than it has been during the past few years, but there are more Resene products and colours than ever before to help bring your design ideas to life.
In this edition of habitat plus, we’ve curated a selection of the most popular paint and decorating ideas sorted by mood and theme to make it simple to find the perfect Resene paint colours, wood stains and wallpaper designs to suit your style and taste. From the latest trends to looks with timeless appeal, these handy ideas and colour combinations are endlessly adaptable to suit your weekend refresh, add a new feature or guide you as you embark on a total home makeover.
No matter where your inspiration takes you, we’d love to see what you create during your decorating journey. Please do share photos with us through email, Facebook or Instagram, as your creative idea might be just what someone else needs to get inspired to start their own decorating project.
