Cabarita Beach SLSC’s big colour change
The members of Cabarita Beach SLSC have been looking after water lovers at Cabarita Beach for over half a century. Over this fifty year period, the club house has undergone some drastic changes.
Ten years ago, the old club house was condemned and had to be demolished. Through fundraising and grants they built a new clubhouse four years later. Over the next few years they managed to gain approval to build a deck. No colour direction was given to the painters so they did what any loyal club member would do: paint it in the club colours. A gold and royal blue deck created a severe contrast to the rest of the building which was two different shades of bright green.
By taking part in the Dulux Surf Club Project, the club members were able to choose a unified colour scheme to cover the deck and the rest of the building. Dulux Moxa is the hero colour that ties the deck to the rest of the club. Dulux Antique White is used to highlight architectural features while a warm and earthy brown covers the doors and the beams supporting the cover on the deck area (Dulux matched to Colorbond® Jasper).
Dulux Weathershield paints were used to protect the club against the strong Northern NSW sun and the powerful winds blowing in off the ocean.
The previous colour scheme “caused a fair bit of discussion and a lot of the members had a good laugh over it. We all learned to live with it until the Dulux Project,” a club member said. “The deck and club house now blend well together and short of a bit of signage the club looks fantastic.”
