Setting the bar high: RESENE


An intimate corner with an elegant bar cart and a cosy, layered blue setting makes for the perfect sophisticated spot. What is better than entertaining with a tipple from your own home bar? To make your space elegant and sophisticated, layer tonal blues and incorporate metallic accents.

FURNISHINGS: Bar cart from Wooden Horse; rug from Grounded Homeware, brass scoop from Good Thing; brass plant pot (on shelf) from H&M Home; plant from Mood Store; all other accessories are stylist’s own.

The walls in this graceful nook are painted in the mid-toned hue of Resene Seachange, a soft Scandinavian blue with a touch of slate grey; an excellent example of how a mid-value wall colour can be rich and luxe when layered with lighter and darker tonal hues.

Here Resene Seachange is paired with another lighter mid-blue, Resene Awash, on the curved wall feature, and a lighter blue with notes of lilac and grey, Resene Breathless, features on the floor.

Metallic accents add a sophisticated and elegant look to a space, such as here on the bar cart and again in the floating shelf accessories; remember, if you want to make it a feature, repeating it three times in a space will help do so.

The bar cart itself has a distinct Art Deco vibe.

The arch painted on the wall in Resene Awash gives a nod to this glamourous era and serves to simultaneously define the area as a place to relax and enjoy while linking the other curved elements in the room together.
