Discover your unique colour personality with Resene.
Just as there are particular colour palettes to suit different complexions for your makeup and wardrobe, there are also seasonal colour palettes based on your specific ‘colour personality’, which can be applied when it comes to decorating your home.
Research suggests the colours we’re drawn to time and again align with a particular season that reflects our individual personalities. Equally, if you feel your home’s existing colour scheme doesn’t feel quite right, then perhaps it’s not in accordance with your colour personality.
Resene colour specialists have conducted their own tests based on Johannes Itten’s seasonal concepts that reveal your own unique colour palette, which is the ideal starting point when it comes time to redecorate.
What's your colour personality?
Mix and match this season’s statement colour with other on-trend hues.
True nature lovers, autumn personalities revel in colours that reflect the changing of the seasons, from lush green, to burnt orange and chocolatey brown. These warm, welcoming tones work well together and are complemented by rustic elements like dark wood and leather, and curiosities and collectibles.
Barren landscapes sprinkled with snow and dotted with accents of winter berries inform the winter colour palette. Stark contrasts between icy tones and intense, vivid colours are complemented by linear furniture, plenty of stainless steel and glass, textured fabrics, strong lighting design, and modern art.
Drawing on the pale pastels found in a spring bouquet, this palette is best suited to light and airy homes with plenty of windows and natural light. Spring personality types tend to have green thumbs, so an abundance of plants is a key feature, with light coloured timber and delicate furniture design.
Inspired by salty summer breezes and respite found under the shade of a tree, summer colours offer an array of cool blues and greens tempered by soft pinks and lemon. Quiet and restrained, summer styling calls on luxurious fabrics, fine china and antiques to create an elegant ambience.
