PAINT THE RAINBOW
– the sky’s the limit with Resene’s new Multi-Finish paint collection
Take your pick of the pigments with Resene’s extensive new
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – we learn the seven colours of the rainbow as children, but in reality the number of possible shades is infinite. Luckily, Resene’s new Multi-Finish collection has 896 colours to choose from, meaning you can now paint the rainbow – and then some.
The range is presented in a series of 64 palettes, making it easy to tap into this season’s tone-on-tone trend, which transforms walls from a neutral canvas for more vibrant furnishings into an integral part of a room’s design.
Our perception of colour depends on light, which is why colours appear to change in tone from day to night – and why it is vitally important to test your favourite colours using Resene testpots in the room you want to use them in.
Simply paint two coats of your chosen Resene testpot onto A2 card, leaving a border around the edge (this separates the new colour from the existing one so you see the true colour). Move your painted swatches around the room during the day and at night to see which work best. Roll your swatch into a big cylinder, with the colour on the inside, and look down it to see how the paint would look on all walls.
