St James Whitting is delighted to announce its collaboration with Resene paints to create the Elementals Collection. Interior designers, Kate St James, FDIA and Catherine Whitting, AssDIA created the Elementals Collection, which features unique colours born from the designers’ passions for the environment with names such as Alcatraz Escape, Montauk, Noosa Blue, Bangalow Leaf, Cartegena and Elche. The collection captures elements from nature, the environment and original artworks, translating them into curated palettes of colour, offering the market a collection unavailable anywhere else in the world.


This range of 147 stunning colours represents their travels within Australia and around the world, where they took inspiration from the spectacular urban and natural environments in locations such as the cities, the beaches, the bays and the countryside. Colours range from neutral to vibrant with each palette available in a range of paint finishes to suit individual requirements and projects. Each palette comes with the designers’ inspiration, ideas and tips that can be implemented to create the perfect interior or exterior solution with ease and confidence.


We have used and specified Resene for many years in private practice, through education and editorials and we support and endorse the values and ethics of the brand. Having a VOC free paint base is, of course, just one part of the puzzle. The other part is making sure you don’t add VOCs when it comes to tint. Resene formulates and manufactures its own exclusive tinters, which are highly concentrated and free of VOCs, so Resene colours can be tinted into decorative paint without changing the VOC levels of the paint itself. Resene Zylone Sheen VOC Free looks and performs the same as the standard product, just without the VOCs.
