Customers are often looking for a quick colour option so knowing the most popular colour means you can suggest colours you know will stand the test of time.
It seems whites and neutrals always fill our top 20 list, but even within those hues there are still constant movements. We’ve seen green edged creams grow in popularity, with three variations of Resene Thorndon Cream now in the top 20.
Blackened whites also leap up the list. Previous favourite Resene Tea is still there with three variants but is knocked off its top perch.
Resene Spanish White and Resene Pearl Lusta are perennial favourites, with three variants of each in the top 20. First launched over 40 years ago in the full strength variant they have been a favourite for many decorators since – an impressive feat when you consider only a few hundred colours were available then and now there are thousands.

These colours are all included in the Resene Whites & Neutrals colour chart and are part of the Resene Total Colour System featuring thousands of colours. This is a far cry from Resene’s first Wellington factory when only six colours were available.
