Resene tasty colours

Regional and special colour palettes

A feast for the eyes. Food and paint – you’d think they don’t have much in common, yet both are linked inextricably to dining.

Look through any Resene colour chart and you’ll see a generous sprinkling of colour names inspired by food – from kiwi inspired Resene Pavlova through to Resene Paua, Resene Hot Chocolate to Resene Melting Moment – it seems that food is the inspiration for a lot more than just eating. And then there’s Tea, in the form of Resene Tea, one of the most popular colours of this decade.

For most eating experiences we’re surrounded by walls, whether they be in a restaurant or in our own homes and whether we like it or not, the eating experience is affected by the environment we eat in. Is it bold and exciting with the striking red of Resene Jalapeno or relaxed and soothing with Resene Coconut Cream? Each lends itself to a different kind of food and a different dining experience.

Inspired by Visa Wellington On a Plate, Resene has put together a tasty colour collection, a sumptuous feast for the eyes. Make the most of your dining experiences and dress up your walls. Some of these colours are from older Resene colour charts. Large swatches of most colours can be viewed at Resene owned ColorShops in the Resene colour library. Once you’ve chosen your favourites, our Resene ColorShop staff can tint them for you.
