Colour it pink this May and support the fight against breast cancer. This month, buy any Resene testpot starting with P, I, N, or K and Resene will donate $1 to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. You’ll be tickled pink with these creative ideas to get you started.

P is for Princess

These colourful and charming painted terrariums are the perfect project to crack out your pink paint. Try Resene Princess, Resene Half Pale Rose or Resene Pink Lace for a cute and crafty finish. These pinks are muted and pastel, perfect for adding an element of subtle fun to your living space. Keep the colour flowing and paint a lamp or paperweight in the same delicate pink.

I is for Ipanema

What better way to welcome guests into your home than with a bright and cheerful front door? This door, painted in Resene Turbo, gives the home vibrant character. Similar to Resene Turbo, Resene Ipanema is a clear bite of yellow perfect for splashing about the house. Other eye-catching door colours to try are the indelibly bright and impossible to ignore Resene Irresistible and Resene Impromptu; a spontaneous and ripe blend of green and yellow.

N is for Niagara

Add spice to your kitchen décor with these scrumptious wooden bowls.

Resene Niagara is a showy peacock green that is sure to stand out amongst the flock. If you’re after a subtler, bluer hue try Resene Nepal; a muted grey blue reminiscent of snowy mountains. Crisp colours not your style? Try a tasty and warm Resene New York Pink. This shrimp pink is a fabulous addition to any kitchen or dining décor. Learn how to make these tabletop bowls here.

K is for Kaitoke

Travel around the world without leaving your kitchen. Paint your kitchen table a light sienna brown with Resene Kalgoorie Sands and embrace the heat of the Australian outback. Resene Kabul will leave a painted vase looking rugged and shabby chic with a hint of faraway spices. Take your table mats to new heights with the sophisticated Resene Kilamanjaro or create your own bold bushwalk linens with Resene Kaitoke Green.
