70s roar in: RESENE


Mellow mustards, bitter oranges, toasted terracotta and spicy browns – the tell-tale tones of 1970s design aesthetic – have recently made a roaring comeback in the world of decorating and are among some of the most desirable shades to include in a trend-forward interior.

This retro lounge, inspired by the best elements of 1970s’ design, is the ideal place to put up your feet and enjoy a beverage among the company of family and friends.

Walls in Resene Gold Coast set the stage for dark and moody details, including the artwork, pendant lamps, art objects and console table painted Resene Nero to pull you in, while the saffron shades of the velvet chair and ottoman invite you to sit and stay awhile.

The bold pattern of the scalloped floor was created using a stencil, evoking a parquet or tiled floor, with alternating shapes painted in Resene Pendragon and Resene Hairy Heath.

For something different, pale tans like Resene Gold Coast look lovely with a soft ochre like Resene Smooth Operator or a reserved wine red like Resene Vanquish.

A rich redwood brown like Resene Hairy Heath, on the other hand, is a great fit for a clean blue green like Resene Deep Teal, a dungeon grey blue Resene Bastille or an oxidised green olive like Resene Planter.

When it comes to a crusty ciabatta tan like Resene Pendragon, a chalky, calm cream beige like Resene Blank Canvas, a creamy yellow like Resene Melting Moment and an authentic blue like Resene True Blue are ideal pairings for a country-chic bedroom or dining space.
