The home renovation continues for Tyge and Christina Dellar of Demo to Reno, who are transforming their home in Stillwater, with sons Valor (seven) and Zeph (four) in tow. After revamping their dining room with Resene paint and wallpaper, the couple’s next challenge is making over the pool room.
“It’s the place where we hang out with our friends, play pool, darts and occasionally have a light refreshment or two,” says Tyge. “This room was incredibly boring, with beige walls and lots of varnished wood. We wanted to create that gentleman’s whiskey pub feel – elevate the space and make it luxurious but still with a strong masculine feel.”
So, the couple headed into their local Resene ColorShop, where Christina picked the brains of Resene Colour Expert Brenda Ngatai to zero in on the perfect colour for the pool room. “Finding the right shade for a whole room can feel totally intimidating, but chatting it through with an expert makes it easy,” says Christina.
They decided on Resene Fuscous Grey, a burnt charcoal grey, and Brenda recommended using Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterborne enamel. This durable paint is ideal for the pool room where rogue cues may hit the wall!
