Virtually endless in its versatility, stencilling is unmatched in its ability to produce a big effect with very little effort. In this room, stencilling triangular tiles has achieved a casual look with a bit of Mediterranean feel – not unlike the tiles you might find in a Greek or Italian trattoria.
Since many of today’s homes – especially new builds – don’t have a separate formal dining room, it’s left up to the homeowner or decorator to create a dining space within an open plan.
In some layouts it isn’t much of a challenge, but others need an element like a large rug to create a cohesive dining area.
Here, by choosing to stencil the rest of the Resene Elderflower floor with Resene Peace – except for beneath the dining table – the negative space left creates the effect of a rug to delineate the dining area.
Silver sage greens like Resene Peace, which was also used on the walls, have a restful vibe, which makes them a natural choice for a space you want to relax and spend some time in.
Resene Elderflower, with its fizzy yellow undertone, is another warm and welcoming choice for a dining room – and the ideal complement for yellowed greens like Resene New Leaf, used on the coat rack and skirting boards, and Resene Smoothie, seen on the tall vase and the woven pendant lamp shade.
