Your walls are one thing, but what about the rest of the room? Go rogue in high style by using paint in unexpected places. In association with Resene. Place to paint #1: The floor You know we love a painted floor, and a well-considered patterned one is a confident statement that adds tons of charisma to an otherwise straightforward space. We created this woven look using three distinct Resene shades: Resene Swiss Caramel, Resene Charcoal and Resene Crowdpleaser. The inspiration For this effect, the geometric appeal of quilted creations by New York textile designer Thompson Street Studio meets the symmetrical pleasure of weaving and wicker in colours that echo sweet tooths’ can’t-say-no flavours: nougat, caramel and chocolate. The tips Loud flooring calls for the rest of the room to be the supporting act. Stick to light, soothing colours for your walls, and furniture in blockish forms that hold their own against a large-scale repeating pattern, then take a less-is-more approach to styling.
