While the floors are beautiful, their tone is relatively understated – allowing the setting to take centre stage. And the same applies to the subtle Resene wall and ceiling finishes. The Tamaki Drive apartments feature walls in Resene Wan White – a warm white that’s warmer than grey, from the Resene Karen Walker Paints collection. The Resene Zylone Sheen surface helps avoid glare in the units and is easy to maintain. The apartment walls are matched with doors in Resene Enamacryl gloss. This is a new- generation product that offers durable, enamellike finishes with all the benefits of waterborne paints – non yellowing, low odour and clean up in water. Resene Alabaster, also from the Resene Whites & Neutrals collection, was specified on the ceilings. This is a near white surface with a light blackened edge, says Karen Warman for Resene. “Choosing popular ceiling and wall colours like these creates a subtle look that ideally complements the minimalist feel of these plush harbourside apartments.” This page: The apartments’ serene interiors are achieved partly thanks to using popular Resene neutrals. Resene Wan White features on the ceilings while Resene Alabaster is used on the walls. The ceilings are further enhanced by decorative cove features with concealed lighting. Doors in the units are finished in Resene Enamacryl gloss. search | save | share at
