Tropical goes sophisticated: RESENE


When you think about a tropical inspired interior it often evokes images of green palm leaves, pink flamingos and light-coloured cane furniture in bright sun-drenched rooms. This colour scheme, inspired by the wrapping paper featured in the frame, takes the concept for a more sophisticated spin.

The key textural elements and motifs of a tropical theme are all still present in this look but anchored in the deep smouldering tones of Resene Quarter Bokara Grey, it becomes elegant and modern, rather than kitsch.

The designer has doubled down on the moody grey by opting for Resene Eighth Bokara Grey on the floor and the living room sideboard, and by filling the space with grey bed linen, cushions and rugs.

That deep base makes the plum Resene Virtuoso on the bedhead, bedside table and the vase bloom like a tropical flower.

The whole look is kept fresh with notes of barely pink Resene Ethereal on the lightshade and ladder, a duskier tone on the bedside Resene Rebel tealight holder and crisp notes of Resene Dreamtime on the wall planter and bedside vase.

Put a twist on traditional tropical and style with sophistication.
