Our 3 favourite exteriors of 2018

17 Jan 2019

After looking back at some of the most inspiring exteriors we’ve seen over the past year, and now that summer is in full swing – at least when the weather is cooperating – we’re thinking that it might be high-time to grab a brush and give our own cladding a refresh. Take a look at what made the cut in our Editor’s short list of exquisite exteriors that used Resene products to become the envy of the neighbourhood.

Thinking of tackling your own exterior? Read through these helpful colourful tips.

Rod and Heather’s captivating Cape Cod cottage

With its coastal Massachusetts-style architecture and fresh blue Resene French Pass exterior and Resene Arctic White trim, we thought Heather and Rod Claycomb’s Sand Dollar Cottage in Matarangi was a real head-turner. If you like what you see on the outside, you should definitely take a look at what’s inside that gabled roof!

Helen and Ian’s bold coastal garden

There was no staying neutral for Helen and Ian Ivess when they made over their home exterior and garden. The couple-opted for a bold Resene colour palette of dark Resene Woodsmoke grey with Resene Burnt Crimson and fresh Resene Seashell on their property in Oakura. We especially love the way their garden blends seamlessly with the neighbouring Matekai Park.

Settlers’ cottage gets a cheeky new look

There’s no denying that this 1860s historic cottage in Nelson looks nothing short of adorable. It seems fitting that a property originally known as the Brown House got an exterior makeover in Resene Brown Pod. The trim looks clean and classic in Resene Black White and we’ve been waxing poetic for the Resene Scrumptious door ever since we spotted this beauty.
