Inspiration from Resene…
Resene Pohutukawa walls gives us Viva Magenta vibes, softened by a circle painted bedhead in Resene Dust Storm. Blue-based, burgundy reds are less energetic than tomato reds, making them more serene for bedrooms. A floor painted in Resene Double Rice Cake is also a great balance to the rich walls. The bedside table is painted in Resene Sakura and the vase is painted in Resene Sauvignon.
