Paint project

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.


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.
