Mood-board / Three ways with Resene Duck Egg Blue

Resene Half Duck Egg Blue provides the palest hint of colour… a wisp of watery blue, ethereal and graceful. It imbues just enough depth to elevate a backdrop from neutral white to elegantly chilled.

We dropped this calm, crystalline tone into three different bach-inspired reading nooks. Imagine kicking back in these spaces with your fav mag and beverage of choice, cool sounds on the stereo and a hint of salt on the late summer breeze.

Paired with mustard, terracotta and sandy brown this look is inspired by the feeling of sun on your cheeks.

Punctuated with deep denim and dark oiled timber this room is inspired by the tones of a Tui feather.
