Be brave with blue this September

09 Sep 2021

Brighten your home with blues this spring and support a good cause. Resene will be running Paint It Blue to help a mate through from 8-21 September 2021. Buy any blue Resene testpot from your local Resene owned ColorShop (NZ) and $1 will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation as part of the Resene Paint It Blue appeal.

It’s not only a great chance to support the great work the Prostate Cancer Foundation does, but it’s also a wonderful chance to spruce up your home for spring with some fresh blue hues.

Three bold ways to use blue in your home:

Bedroom blues

Vivienne and Geoff painted the master bedroom in their French-style home with Resene Dusted Blue on the walls and Resene Half Black White on the ceiling and trim.

A soft blue bedroom can do wonders for relaxation, inviting a calm atmosphere that can lower blood pressure and slow your heart rate. Resene Dusted Blue is a pale blue with a touch of grey, perfect for introducing colour into a space without overwhelming it. If you’re looking for a moody bedroom, try a deep blue such as Resene Indian Ink, that will bring a feeling of richness to the space.

Paint your exterior

Heather and Rod painted the exterior of their home, Sanddollar Cottage, in bright Resene French Pass.

Painting the exterior of your home blue is a great way to introduce bright colour and increase street appeal. Lighter blues, such as Resene French Pass, are extremely versatile exterior colours that complement a range of outdoor materials, including paving stones, barked gardens and lush lawns. Pair your painted exterior with white trim to really make the colours pop.
