Colour Consultant – Residential Development – Kensington Park Orewa Exteriors Update

I have been working on the Kensington Park exteriors for the last 4 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.

I really enjoyed working on this project – it is such an iconic building in Coxs Bay. It is now sitting proud amongst the pohutakawa trees.

Colour Consultant – La Dolce Caffe & Bar Interior

‘La Dolce Caffe & Bar’ in Apollo Drive, has been open for a while now, it has a great vibe.  The depth of the dark chocolate/coffee colour I used plays well with the grey/green used in full strength and then half strength on the adjacent walls, and a warm but fresh white to bring it all together on the ceilings and doors.  The owners chose the art work, and I think the pop of red works really well.
