When your canvas is literally as big as a house, you want to ensure you get the paint colours right. It can be a daunting task deciding on a scheme for the exterior, especially given the cost of materials and labour. There are also a surprising number of exterior features to consider when compiling a colour scheme – walls, windows, the roof, the front door, verandas etc.

Which is why Resene has created a new Habitat Plus booklet to let you see how different styles of exteriors – from ultra modern to classic heritage – look in various colour schemes. They have taken an existing house, then virtually painted it with alternative schemes to show you the difference that paint colours can make. There’s a good mix of contemporary and traditional schemes, as well as some more challenging combinations.

Resene also step’s out into the garden to show you how different courtyards and landscaping features look in different colour schemes, using both paint and exterior stains from the Resene Woodsman range.

So before you give up in frustration and just paint everything off-white, pop into your local Resene ColorShop or reseller, pick up your free copy of Habitat Plus and find the right scheme for your home or view it online.
