Colour Consultant – Residential Development – Kensington Park Orewa Exteriors Update

I have been working on the Kensington Park exteriors for the last few years.  There are still some buildings to be built and painted, but I was out there last week, and so pleased with the overall look.  As you can imagine the process of creating the exterior colours for an expansive hillside, which is viewed from all around Orewa, needs careful consideration for the owners of the houses looking down onto the roofs, as well as the people living at Kensington Park, and the enhancement of the cityscape.  Colour balance, flow, harmony as well as practical elements such as the LRV rating allowed on weatherboards, come into the process when I am choosing the range of colours.  Being an artist certainly helps when working on the overall concept, and being able to visualise how it will look.  The landscaping has been well thought through to enhance the space and its buildings.  Here are a few more photos of the latest stage to be completed.

“So, What Colours Do Go With A Terracotta Roof?”

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.
