What’s new for spring at Resene

These time-saving products and trending designs from Resene will inspire your next DIY projects, both indoors and out.

Hey fresco

Indoor and outdoor concrete surfaces can be awash with colour, using the Resene In The Wash range of concrete washes. These buildable sheer colours work with Resene Concrete Clear, Resene Concrete Wax and Resene Walk-on Concrete Clear to create various different coloured effects on concrete including a fresco look. These colours are great for a range of outdoor projects including pavers, planters and concrete walls.

For exterior walls, apply Resene Solventborne Aquapel followed by one coat of Resene Concrete Clear gloss. Then apply one or two coats of your chosen Resene ConcreteWash colour tinted into Resene Concrete Clear satin. Available in five colours Resene Whitewash, Resene Greigewash, Resene Blondewash, Resene Claywash and Resene Stonewash. Available from Resene ColorShops and resellers.

The big heat

When temperatures rise, it can become a race against the clock when painting your home to avoid lapmarks from paint that’s drying too quickly. Enter Resene Hot Weather Additive, a special additive you can mix with your paint that slows down the drying time, making it easier to maintain a wet edge. Available from Resene ColorShops and resellers.

Anything goes

Whether your style is coastal chic, classic charm or art deco decadence, the Resene Golden Age Wallpaper Collection will help you stripe the right balance in your home. Stripe designs such as Resene Wallpaper Collection 101077144 are great at playing well with other patterns such as florals and leafy prints.  You need to see these designs in real life to truly appreciate the design and colours.  View the wallpaper range at your local Resene ColorShop.

Budding romance

Floaty florals and blooming lovely wallpaper designs are trending in interiors right now. Nostalgic blossoms such as Resene Wallpaper Collection 38726-4 will add a touch of romance and whimsy to your space. If wallpapering an entire wall is too a step too far, try wallpapering above the dado line, pairing with wainscoting or panelling painted in a fresh hue like Resene Awash, and flooring stained in Resene Colorwood. Available from Resene ColorShops.

Give it a rust

Achieve the look of rusted aged steel without blowing the budget with Resene FX Faux Rust Effect.
