Processes, products and paints

Prior to starting, all interior surfaces were dusted and vacuumed to eliminate contamination and dust particles from being deposited onto and/or into paint and surfaces being painted.

The exposed concrete block wall through the kitchen area was sealed with Resene ‘Concrete clear’ giving a natural clear finish. The walls were coated with Resene ‘Wallboard Sealer’ and finished with 2 topcoats of Resene ‘Spacecoat’. All Interior doors were finished in Resene ‘Lustacryl’ with the Cavity Slider doorjambs and windowsills in Resene ‘Aqua clear’ to enhance the Macrocarpa grain.

Sophisticated Neutrals

In theme with any contemporary design, cream, white, tan, beige and black were used and were tied together with green carpets. The Contemporary use of colour celebrates what isn't there, as much as what is.
