OUTDOOR PAINT IDEAS
Choosing the right shades for their home was a crucial step in the early planning stages, so Louise and Luke hired a colour consultant. “Our exterior had many elements including Colorbond roofing, render, weatherboards, timber windows, posts and entry doors,” says Louise. “Though we had a good idea of the colours we wanted to use, having a harmonious palette was really important and the consultant was a great help.” They chose Colorbond Shale Grey for the roof and Surfmist for the verandah posts and weatherboards; and Dulux Vivid White for window frames, Mangaweka for the render and Black Caviar for the front door. “These colours work together beautifully,” says Louise.
