Hav­ing a painter in the fam­ily helped to make re­dec­o­rat­ing a dated 1960s stucco house in Whanganui a breeze. Joanna and Brent Eastabrook, an emer­gency nurse and painter re­spec­tively, have been ren­o­vat­ing their home one room at a time.

Daugh­ter Grace loves pink, Joanna says. “This made it easy to come up with a com­bi­na­tion to im­press her.” The cou­ple paired Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Cav­ern Pink’, a beau­ti­ful rosy pink, with the gor­geous apri­cot Imag­i­nar­ium ‘Charm’ wall­pa­per from Re­sene, and painted the ceil­ing and trim in Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Black White’. For his room, son Lu­cas chose Re­sene ‘Half New Denim Blue’, a dark moody blue, and Re­sene ‘Lon­gi­tude’, a pas­tel grey-blue. A bold yel­low wall map com­pleted the look.
