Here’s how to make a powerful interior statement by pairing bold monochrome with softly curved shapes

Be bold in your interior with a combination of black, white and grey tones that, while striking, is surprisingly versatile. Customising your surroundings in contrast is entirely possible thanks to multi-purpose paint formulas from Resene, with a product to suit everything from walls to floors, to furnishings and décor.

A painterly play on a feature wall can bring out your inner artist and, thanks to subtle grey shades, is anything but overpowering. Here, Resene Half Concrete on the upper wall is overlaid with Resene Concrete on the lower wall and via artful squiggle lines. The Resene Triple Concrete top of this ingenious DIY coffee table (pictured above) is offset with rounded legs in Resene Element — in fact, rounded silhouettes are an imperative aspect of this room’s balance, ensuring the overall effect is a joy of juxtaposition.
