Fancy a lick of fresh Karen Walker paint?

Karen Walker Resene paint collection

Just as clothing collections are launched to give consumers fresh ideas, so too are fashion paint collections.  Building on the success of the last Karen Walker collection, the partnership between our most famous designer and Resene continues with a trendy new range.

The new collection includes a brand new seventh palette, bringing together a group colour stories that, true to the Karen Walker style, play with combining opposites and putting together ideas in surprising ways.

There are variations of favourite hues so you can create tonal colour schemes or subtler colour atmospheres.  Each palette is presented on its own card so the palettes can be all laid out to be viewed en masse or mixed and mingled to suit.

The Karen Walker Paints chart is available from Resene ColorShops, representatives and selected resellers, or order it free from
