HOW TO CHOOSE PAINT COLOURS INSPIRED BY BALI
+ The use of colour is very important in Balinese culture. Many colours carry powerful symbolic associations drawn from Hindu or Buddhist beliefs, but natural colours such as blue, ochre and green are also common. Choose shades like these that are from naturally occurring elements such as leaves, wood and clay.
+ If you’re choosing a large range of paint colours similar to the palette featured in this home, keep the interior sheens the same to give the surfaces a common element. Resene Zylone Sheen is a popular low-sheen, waterborne finish.
+ Painted surfaces in Bali feature an imperfect, aged look. View the Resene range of paint effects online at resene.co.nz/painteffects and learn how to get a similar look using effects such as sponging, colour-washing, rag-rolling and lime-washing. + While few of us consider doing it, painting the exterior of your home a feature colour can create a distinctive look that’s deeply satisfying if the colour is meaningful to you. Select one Resene colour that has rich depth or beautiful brightness, and choose another complementary Resene colour to use sparingly. In this case, the homeowner has chosen a highly pigmented yellow and a deep magenta pink.
