Resene grey isolators
Viewing colours on colour charts can be very disconcerting with stronger hues reflecting their inner beauty onto less dazzling neighbouring hues, making it difficult for even the most experienced colour professional to assess the true hue.
Resene has for many years offered customers Resene grey isolators to screen out the distractions of neighbouring colours when viewing charts. Be sure to isolate your colour the next time you make your colour selections, to ensure you are seeing the true beauty of the colour. Some colour charts, such as The Range series, come complete with inbuilt grey isolators. For those that don't, the Resene grey isolators are available free from Resene ColorShops and resellers.

A whiter shade of pale
If the unique properties of white are used skilfully, it is easy to create warm-soft and cool-crisp colour combinations. Too often it is chosen by default with no regard for its image – 'White is Right'!
Ceiling? White. Window sashes? White. Picket fences? White. Door and skirtings? White.
Some famous interior designers have made their mark in the world of design by the almost exclusive use of white. Syrie Maugham springs to mind in the period between the 1st and 2nd World Wars and latterly Ralph Lauren. He is quoted as saying, 'In my own life and in my home, white is everywhere'.
White need not look stark – subtle off whites are very easy to live with. Paintings, furniture, fabric and plants add their own colour, texture and energy as does timber flooring and architectural detailing. Walls painted white allow other features to have dominance – i.e. furniture will stand out more in a white room as will a beautiful view to the outdoor landscape.
White has many moods. It is associated with light and can make spaces appear brighter, however it is wise to remember it is essentially cool. The south facing room that has bad light will not suddenly be fixed with a coat of white paint. In fact, it may end up looking even darker and chillier. This phenomenon is due to the reflectiveness of white. White is highly reflective, maximising any available light, thus drawing attention to any deficiencies. A more effective way to lighten a room is to paint the ceilings and window frames pure white to direct all natural light into the room.
In living rooms, whites can look arty and comfortable, or cool and elegant. If the look you favour is rustic simplicity, combine textured fabrics with natural materials like stone, wood and brick. If an elegant look is preferred, combine whites with reflective sheens and light filmy drapes. In the bathroom, a timeless crystalline look can be developed with white tiles, velvety walls and wooden or marble floors. It is at once holistic and cleansing, reflecting the watery medium.
For a touch of White Magic use gloss and matt paint in wide stripes on walls and hang crystal prisms in the windows and watch the sunlight make rainbows every morning.
So think white – right? Right!
Decorating with whites and neutrals...
See the Resene Whites & Neutrals colour chart and The Range Whites & Neutrals for a great range of popular Resene whites and neutrals hues.
When choosing neutrals, one quick way to create a colour scheme is to choose strengths of the same colour, such as full strength on the walls, double strength on the doors (helps to hide fingermarks) and eighth or quarter strength on the ceiling.
Vary the sheen level surface to surface to accentuate the colour differences. Try Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen on walls, Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel on trims and joinery and Resene SpaceCote Flat on ceilings.
Always try out your colours using a Resene testpot in the area you plan to paint before you start your painting project – that’s the best way to confirm the colour looks right before you start painting. You can also can order drawdowns online.

But isn't it better than in a tent. The owner asked with a mock wink. The door to the tiny bedroom closed, and Igor was left alone with his thoughts. And dreams. But he soon found that solitude was relative.
