Top of the pots

From the What's New archive - November 2006...

While it's nice to be different, sometimes it is also good to know that you have selected a colour that is hugely popular and widely accepted.

Delving into testpot sales, Resene found, not surprisingly, that the top 20 is dominated by whites and neutrals, reflecting their broad acceptance and use on a vast array of projects both inside and out. Based on testpot sales, the most popular Resene colours are:

1. Resene Spanish White
