Sun-day style: RESENE

When the sun is shining and the air is warm, a place to relax outside, read a book and enjoy a tipple should be on everyone’s to-do list.

Whether your outdoor area is big or small, having one dedicated space where you can sit with a book – or drink – in hand makes all the difference on a hot summer’s day or a balmy summer’s night. What’s more, creating an outdoor patio that’s stylish, welcoming and cosy, will not only make this area an extra living space, but a destination.

Bring life and intrigue to the walls with Resene FX Paint Effects, a tintable acrylic. This textured look gives you an opportunity to create a unique alternative to traditional wall coverings and is especially appropriate for outdoor areas where such options are more difficult to work in effectively. The walls on this outdoor patio have been painted in Resene Aspiring with paint effect Resene FX Paint Effects Medium tinted in Resene Moon Mist.

In this outdoor patio, light is bounced around through bright popping hues and soft highlights. The deck stained in Resene Woodsman Uluru, a blonded brown wood stain, brings in warmth from below, where it is matched with pops of sunny-inspired hues such as the table and large plant pot in the rustic and casual mustard of Resene Teak and the rattan chair in the green and yellow toned beige of Resene Yuma.
