When making a major financial commitment getting their home designed or decorated, clients want to ensure they get the paint colours right. It can be a daunting task deciding on a scheme for the exterior, especially given the cost of materials and labour. There is also a surprising number of exterior features to consider when compiling a colour scheme: walls, windows, the roof, the front door, verandas, etc.
Resene's Habitat Plus booklet shows how different styles of exteriors – from ultra modern to classic heritage – look in various colour schemes. Each section takes an existing house, then shows it virtually painted with alternative schemes to show the difference that paint colours can make. A good mix of contemporary and traditional schemes are showcased as well as some more challenging combinations.
It also includes garden sections to show how different courtyards and landscaping features look in different colour schemes, using both paint and exterior stains from the Resene Woodsman range.
You can get free copies of Habitat Plus from your Resene ColorShop and selected resellers or view the booklet online.
