Resene Total Colour Award winners

None

Using a fresh green palette with neutrals has won a Resene Total Colour Award for interior designer Kim Forkert of Parkhurst Design.
Announced last night, Kim won the Resene Total Colour Awards Residential Interior category for her transformation of a 1938 brick house into a home with light open spaces. The palette of colours was inspired by a boldly striped Harlequin wallpaper, Anoushka Bella Stripe, chosen for the entrance and hall.

Tip: Use a striking fabric or wallpaper to inspire your colour scheme. For latest wallpaper trends, see the collections available at Resene.

While most of the walls and trims are in Resene Half Villa White, Kim balanced the bold wallpaper with the fun and lively Resene Jigsaw for a wall in the adjoining dining room. This colour was then echoed in the glass mosaic splashback in the kitchen. Another green, Resene Kombi, was chosen for a boy’s bedroom.
As well as the award winning interior, the exterior of the home also needed resolving to marry the original house, clad in Huntly brick with a modern mono-pitch addition.

Tip: To tie two different architectural styles together use simple consistency of colour between the two structures.

The brick cladding colour on the extension is Resene Half Parchment which sits well next to the warm-coloured brick. For the new timber garage door and cedar cladding detail, Kim chose Resene Waterborne Woodsman tinted to Resene Cedar. The soffits are Resene Eighth Pearl Lusta and Resene Nero, the original wooden joinery is Resene Half Villa White which, at first glance, is hard to differentiate from the new joinery, and the front door is Resene Nero to make a strong statement.

Overall winner: The overall winner of the Resene Total Colour Awards, who receives the Nightingale award, is Architectus for the Clark Street Overbridge in Auckland. This also took the Resene Total Colour Award Commercial Exterior award. A Nightingale Maestro (and the Residential Exterior Award) went to Designgroup Stapleton Elliott for the Wellington City Council Regent Park Development.
