Embrace the spirit of ‘gelato days’ this spring with Resene

We’ve found ourselves in the midst of a unique time in history that has thrown us all for a loop. And with our whole world rocked by change, the driving factors behind colour and design trends have also been turned on their heads.

Our mission is now one of care – both for ourselves, and our greater community – and there’s a need for colour trends, inspiration, ideas, rooms and spaces that reflect this.

More than ever, it’s essential to create soothing and calming spaces in our homes, but we also need spaces that are stimulating to spend time in. Much more time, perhaps, than we might be used to.

Being inspired by carefree, joyful memories of gelato on hot summer afternoons is an easy way to bring warmth, cheeriness and optimism into any space.

Like your favourite gelato, layer up sweet tones then add a tangy or surprising twist. Look to hazier Resene tones to bring the summer vibe without the sweetness overload.

Coco Republic’s New Collection has us Longing for Summer

If spring has let you down with its unexpectedly chilly weather, fret not: sultry summer days shouldn’t be too far off. Which means now is the perfect time turn your attention to your outdoor living space.

This season we’re spoilt for choice where all things outdoor living are concerned as Coco Republic has revealed a breathtaking outdoor collection for the coming summer months.

Drawing inspiration from natural surrounds – think hilltops to desert scapes and sprawling coastlines – these stunning pieces will transform your outdoor area into a luxurious living space.

Anthony Spon-Smith says of designing the new outdoor collection, “Australian and New Zealand homes are being designed to take into account the way we live in our outdoor spaces. This year especially, we have become more accustomed to living, dining and seeking comfort from within our homes. Indoor-outdoor living has been incredibly prevalent in recent years and whilst it’s not a new phenomenon, it is only going to grow from here.”

With this in mind, not only does the collection feature fabuous furniture such as sun loungers, dining tables and chairs, but for the very first time there’s a stylish fire pit and log holder available.
