day dreaming

From Habitat magazine - issue 23

Add whimsy with soft shades.

Dreamy shades of muted pastel give this room a look that's perfect for spring and summer. Unashamedly feminine with its pink accents, these could be easily changed out to give the space a broader gender appeal. The walls are in Resene Rakaia, a smoky grey, and are teamed with Resene Alabaster trims and a timber floor blonded with Resene Colorwood Rock Salt. The shelving unit is kissed with the rose petal pink of Resene Sweet Spot alongside the paler Resene Seashell. The short grey vase on the top shelf is in Resene Tapa with the pale urn on the bottom shelf in Resene Rolling Fog. Add a side table in Resene Reservoir as a cool contrast – a sweet spot to spend summer.

Colour block shelves

For a new twist on the colour blocking trend, two shelves and a door in the wall unit have been picked out in Resene Sweet Spot; the rest of the unit is in Resene Seashell.
