THE STYLIST SAYS...

Homestyle New Zealand - - RESENE -

To cre­ate these Mon­drian-style painted wall mould­ings, choose a swatch of har­mo­nious hues from the Re­sene Multi-fin­ish range. Pick a mid-tone plus colours that are lighter and darker, then step out­side that to se­lect an even deeper shade for your bat­tens. En­sure the re­sult is pleas­ing to the eye by paint­ing side-by-side shapes dif­fer­ent shades. Your hor­i­zon­tal bat­tens can dou­ble as pic­ture ledges. Con­sider the hues in your art­works when de­cid­ing which colour to paint the shapes behind them. Bring a shade off your wall into the room with a painted plinth that el­e­vates home­ware to sculp­ture sta­tus. To keep this look so­phis­ti­cated, opt for f loor­ing, fur­nish­ings and ac­ces­sories that are a paler, more neutral ex­pres­sion of your wall’s colour pal­ette.
