It can be quite a challenge to find the right paint colours that work well with a terracotta roof, without the main colour looking too washed out. This character house in Upland Rd, once Charles Goldie’s home, has been revived by its new owners with a new interior and exterior colour scheme. The placement of the accent colours have also been essential in strengthening the whole colour scheme, so the roof colour doesn’t take over.
A different colour to the one above has been painted on this elegant stucco house in Epsom, with considered placement of highlight colours to ground it. It stands proud, and inviting.
This grand house in Remuera has also had a total makeover, and is looking magnificent.
