Evryine knows the best baches are simple, nostalgic and low-maintenance, and with a few licks of paint, yours can also be super chic.
Bach life at its best.
THE ST YLIST SAYS...
This Scandi-esque look is easily achieved with just a few tonal colours. Earthy shades like Resene Half Stonehenge and Resene Dusty Road pair beautifully with timber.
Take the rustic chic of plywood walls up a notch with a coat of Resene Colorwood Whitewash, which retains the natural beauty of the woodgrain.
Crisp white Resene Soapstone floors are modern and practical, and provide a counterpoint to the detail in the timber. Create an elegant artwork by painting pieces of fabric with Resene testpots, then layering them in interesting compositions. We used sewing-pattern pieces to form abstract shapes. Cut and remove any excess fabric, then place your work in a wooden frame; choose one with a white mat board to enhance the effect.
Update the classic bachy blend of pre-loved odds and sods with paredback designer furniture and artisanal statement pieces.
