This season’s new offerings from Resene will help you customise and curate spaces in your home, both inside and out.  

Appliance art

Elevate your kitchen design to a whole new level with Samsung Bespoke x Resene. In an inspired collaboration, the tech titan and paint powerhouse have partnered to help you create truly tailored home appliances. The Samsung Bespoke range of fridges and dishwashers can now be finished in your favourite Resene colour to fit in seamlessly – or stand out dramatically – in your kitchen. Whether you want to go nice and neutral with Resene Black White, add subtle shades with Resene Duck Egg Blue or be bold and bright with Resene Dynamite, there are thousands of Resene colours to choose to customise your Samsung Bespoke refrigerator. 

Cover me in colour

Make a bold statement in your bedroom with a colour-blocked Resene Calypso Duvet Cover Set. Designed with Resene paint colours as inspiration, the Resene Living Calypso range is available in Nocturnal, Scrub, Cinnamon and Escapade colourways. 

Resene Nocturnal is mixed with Resene Gunsmoke and Resene Half Delta for a moody, masculine look; Resene Scrub is paired with Resene Siam and Resene Half Fossil for a lush, nature-inspired vibe; Resene Cinnamon creates a bold combination with Resene Gunsmoke and Resene Nocturnal; while Resene Escapade is joined by Resene Half Delta and Resene Biscay to create a calming, soothing ambiance. Available from Briscoes.

Disco decor

The Resene FX Metallic range has been popular with lovers of all things shiny since its release, and now there’s a new option for adding sparkling special effects to your interior: the Resene FX Metallics Wallpaper Collection. Designed and manufactured in Porirua by Resene’s wallpaper partner Aspiring Walls, the range is available in 45 shimmering shades that offer glamour, drama and versatility.

Paving grace

Impart some sheer and stylish colour to the concrete inside and outside your home with Resene ConcreteWash. Summer is the perfect time to do this, and the on-trend shades in the Resene In the Wash collection can be used to bring subtle, buildable colour to concrete walls, interior floors, exterior walkways and decorative elements like concrete planters and furniture.

The wood oil

Let the natural warmth and beauty of your timber shine through while bringing it to life with Resene Woodsman Cedar Natural Wood Oil. It can be used on weatherboards, landscaping, interior walls and ceilings to protect, enhance and rejuvenate the wood finish. Each shade is named after a National Park or Forest Park and, in honour of this tree-inspired collection, Resene has donated 500 native trees to Trees that Count to help regenerative native forests. Remember to always apply your testpot to a representative sample of timber before making your final colour choice.

Drape expectations

The simplest way to refresh your bathroom is by installing a new shower curtain. The Resene Living shower curtain range pairs stylish patterns with popular Resene paint colours to suit all kinds of bathroom aesthetics – from classic to contemporary. Helpfully,  the curtains’ soft waterproof fabric is super easy to keep clean and fresh. Available from Briscoes.

Seal and reveal

Did you know you can easily and cost-effectively update your kitchen and bathroom cabinetry with Resene paint? All you need to do is prepare the surface properly first, with Resene Laminate and Melamine Primer, which will help your topcoats stick. Then finish with Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel or your favourite Resene topcoat.  Add some new handles and you’ll have a fresh new room at a fraction of the cost of a new kitchen or bathroom.

Green cleaning

Got a big cleaning job ahead at your place? Resene Bio-Cleaner is now available in a handy 10 litre size. Eco Choice-approved Resene Bio-Cleaner is a powerful, high-efficiency biodegradable cleaner you can use to quickly and easily clean surfaces ready for painting, or use it to freshen up your home’s exterior to help your paint last longer. It’s made with eugenol, the active ingredient in clove oil, which helps to inhibit mould and fungal regrowth.
