Family heritage


Light paint colours on both the exterior and interior of the Landmark Homes Karaka house keep the look fresh and lively.

Resene colours from the Resene Whites & Neutrals fandeck were specified for the project. Resene Delta, a warm ochre tinged with grey, features on the exterior, and Resene Quarter Linen, a fine flaxen neutral, on the interior.

Karen Warman, Resene marketing manager, says paints recommended for exteriors include Resene Sonyx 101, an Environmental Choice-approved paint for maximum durability in exposed areas. It imparts a semi-gloss sheen, making it easier to clean than a lower sheen finish and easier on the eye than a high gloss finish. It's also available in Resene CoolColour technology when darker colours are planned.

Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen and Resene Zylone Sheen are recommended for interior broadwalls. These are also waterborne paints that are low-odour and Environmental Choice-approved. They are durable and easy to wipe down, so well suited to family homes.

For details, or to pick up a copy of the latest fandeck, visit a Resene ColorShop, or freephone 0800 Resene (737 363). .
