This boldly beautiful space showcases the new trend for striking reds, which, when contrasted with other bold shades and natural textures create an exotic Pasifika look, by way of Morocco.
On this side of the world, with our clear, bright, natural light, we have traditionally opted for bluer, deeper reds such as the Resene Dynamite used here on the lower wall.
By pairing it with a truer red such as the Resene Poppy seen here on the upper wall, the overall effect is much less oppressive and in fact opens the room up.
Further layering of red tones with the floor vase painted in Resene Raging Bull, the shelf vase in Resene Moccasin and the exotic earthy toned rug, all create a frame which can be filled with contrasting tones and textures.
Red tones in this room are dramatically combined with a blue floor painted in a base colour of Resene Wishing Well, also used in the matching side table.
The use of an overlaid stencilled floor pattern in Resene Time After Time is a clever way to add texture and interest to the space, cooling down the reds, while still enhancing their impact.
Elegant furniture and accessories in natural tones and textures, work in perfectly with these dramatic background colours, adding a lightness and simplicity, without sacrificing style and elegance.
