Four easy-peasy colour blocking bedroom ideas from Resene Living

New year, new bedroom? If refreshing your bedroom is one of your goals for 2021, the team at Resene Living have made things simple. Bedrooms are spaces that lend themselves to bold, playful interior design, however finding the right décor to match your favourite paint shade can be overwhelming and time consuming. But not anymore.

The Astra range of duvet cover sets by Resene Living, available at Briscoes, are designed with Resene paint colours as inspiration.  The range of colour-blocked duvet cover sets are made of super crisp cotton percale and will add a modern and fresh look to your bedroom. The Astra range is available in Pirate Gold, Bunting, Pale Slate and Alabaster colourways which are designed to be mixed and matched with Resene colours.

“Translated to interiors from fashion, colour-blocking is a simple but effective way to introduce colour into your space,” says Nichole Wilke, Resene Living textile designer.

“We’ve created the Resene Living Astra range in a carefully curated palette of neutral and vibrant colours, making it a breeze to style with Resene paint colours. For a modern and fresh update, mix and match accessories and textures for the ultimate in colour-block style,” she says.


Resene Living Astra Pale Slate offers an on-trend combination, pairing Resene Pale Slate with Resene Finch and Resene Alabaster for simple sophistication. The wall colours are Resene Blanched Pink, Resene Kelp and Resene Alabaster.

Resene Living Astra Pale Slate mixes mossy-green hue Resene Kelp with sharp neutrals Resene Alabaster and Resene Slate. The combination looks divine when paired with Resene Blanched Pink, Resene Kelp and Resene Alabaster wall paint colours. Indoor plants add to the lush tropical look.


Resene Living Astra Bunting is paired with walls painted Resene Dusted Blue, Resene Conch and Resene Alabaster.

Take on the tonal trend with blue walls combined with the Resene Living Astra Bunting duvet set. The Resene Bunting colourway pairs the chalky grey blue Resene Waikawa Grey with Resene Pale Slate. A diagonal colour blocked feature wall (pictured above) painted in Resene Dusted Blue, Resene Conch and Resene Alabaster plays off the geometric pattern of the Resene Living Astra Bunting set.


Resene Living Astra Pirate Gold combined with a colour blocked wall design painted with Resene Dark Knight, Resene Grey Seal and Resene Alabaster.

For a bold masculine bedroom, pair Resene Living Astra Pirate Gold with macho wall shades such as Resene Dark Knight, Resene Grey Seal and Resene Alabaster. Resene Living Astra Pirate Gold combines Resene Pale Slate and the vibrant yellow, Resene Pirate Gold, which pops against dark hues.
