For the love of old homes

feature of wardrobe doors

This is Tony and Kirsten’s house project. Their home, a 1900s two storey villa home, was moved by Craig Walker Building Removals from Epsom to South Head.

It was in ‘original’ condition but has now been totally gutted and re-built inside, and fully renovated, including a new roof.

Tony and Kirsten have used Resene paints, and wallpapers throughout the house, including the kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and wardrobes. The extensive painting work has taken around four months to do, though it is still a work in progress as there is still a lot to be done outside. They have painted the top storey, however the bottom is still quite original, with veranda decking, stairs, and landscaping to be completed.

The exterior is painted Resene Friar Grey and Resene Alabaster with an Ironsand roof. Inside, the kitchen, dining and downstairs bathroom are painted in Resene Silver Chalice, with the stairway and hallway in Resene Tasman. Shades of Resene Silver Chalice are continued into other rooms, with Resene Half Silver Chalice on the downstairs bathroom vanity and Resene Quarter Silver Chalice teamed with Resene Baltic Sea on a wardrobe. The upstairs area is Resene Triple White Pointer throughout. All trims, doors, windows and skirting boards are Resene Alabaster, a colour that is also repeated on the kitchen cabinetry, the upstairs bathroom vanity and selected wardrobes.

The home also features three wallpapers from the Masterpiece and Paradise collections.

Both love old houses, and hope to do the house justice with their colour choices.
