A 15-year-old lifestyle property in the beautiful countryside of Kumeu on the outskirts of Auckland was home to four boisterous boys – now adults, and it was decided the timing was right to renovate this much loved home.
The client engaged Karen from KCandy&Co. for her expert knowledge of colour and familiarity with their lifestyle (the children of each family being friends).
The brief included a new colour scheme throughout, new carpet, curtains/blinds and furniture and lighting. Dated bathrooms were updated to offer a more contemporary look.
Design inspiration came from the surrounding planting, landscaping and countryside setting. Subtle tones with an emphasis on texture and light was the agreed goal. The new colour palette deleted all the dated cream coloured doors and surrounds. Warm greys were introduced and paired with accent darks.
