Colour scheme for Redcliffe

Our colour consultation and overlays for an apartment tower in Redcliffe, Brisbane, has helped the body corporate choose a beautiful colour scheme.

The Marine Cove body corporate needed help to choose colours for their fast-approaching repaint and we were appointed to assist.

The committee members involved in the choosing the scheme didn’t know which
colours they wanted – they knew the colours must match the decorative stone on
the building and wanted a feature colour, but one that was more
colourful than popular grey for their ocean-facing property.

Our intrepid colour consultant aided the members, honing in on their unrealised colour preference for a deep blue feature and refining two suitable colour scheme options which also looked great with the stone decoration on the balconies and front retaining wall.

With paint colour fandecks and a kit of colour samples, our intrepid colour consultant aided the members, honing in on their unrealised colour preference for a deep blue feature and refining two suitable colour scheme options which also looked great with the stone decoration on the balconies and front retaining wall.

Large colour samples were used to check the colours in different light and against the stone features and existing frames which weren’t being painted, to make sure they would look great on different parts of the building – we use large colour samples, because small paint chips don’t give an accurate enough idea of the colour for choosing which hue would look good on a building.

Both schemes featured a light neutral for the main walls, a darker neutral hue for the retaining walls, a clean white for soffits and a stunning blue for the feature wall.

We ended the colour consultation with the two schemes decided one – we always aim to end the consultation with clarity on which colour schemes we’ll use for overlays (and for members to choose between), because we realise time is of the essence.

Occasionally a bit of additional work needs to be done, for example, if a unique feature colour is required, in which case we continue to refine the colour scheme to get it right.

The next step was to create the digital colour overlays, where we added the colour schemes to a photo of the building.

Colour samples were also given to the owners to they could see the colours and view them alongside the overlays, in case screens or lighting altered the colours on the overlays.

With this comprehensive colour guide, the body corporate were able to vote on which scheme they wanted, and the painting went ahead as scheduled.

The painting was delivered by Integrity Project Management, and the result was fantastic.

Marine Cove looks amazing with a fresh, contemporary colour scheme, and the body corporate is very pleased.
