Kirsty and David’s farm­house-style home, set on 1.5 acres, is clothed in pine weath­er­boards painted in the warm grey tone of Re­sene ‘Kens­ing­ton Grey’ with starchy white ac­cents in Re­sene ‘Half Rice Cake’ on the trim and ve­ran­das.

The kitchen is the pièce de ré­sis­tance, with the soft green of Re­sene ‘Emerge’ paired with Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Rice Cake’, and the spa­cious scullery fea­tur­ing units painted in the strik­ing black Re­sene ‘Black­jack’. “I looked at sev­eral French farm­house kitchens and also a few Hamp­tons-style kitchens while de­sign­ing the kitchen and scullery,” says Kirsty.

Pops of colour such as those in the kitchen are off­set by sim­pler tones: ceil­ings and doors are all painted in Re­sene ‘Quar­ter Rice Cake’, as are the en­suites, fam­ily room and of­fice. The for­mal lounge, hall­way and main bath­room are painted in the sub­tle white of Re­sene ‘Blanc’.

“We knew we wanted Re­sene ‘Emerge’ in the kitchen and the rest of the liv­ing ar­eas fairly neu­tral. We still wanted a home with colour so we de­cided to put some life into the bed­rooms.”
