- Q: I have a heritage house in red/brown brick and need to repaint the timber work.
I have a heritage house in red/brown brick and need to repaint the timber work. The existing colours are a yellowish/mustard and cream. I don't mind this palette, but would like to freshen the look, possibly with a brighter yellow and a pale lemon. Any suggestions?
You might look at these combinations, but be aware yellows/lemons can look quite strong and are not heritage inspired: Resene Ipanema with Resene First Light, or Resene Weathered Yellow with Resene Rice Cake, or Resene Golden Sand with Resene Rum Swizzle.
A clean warm ochre yellow and a real white will give a fresher, more contemporary look – try Resene Splash with Resene Alabaster.
