Top twenty colours - 2019

Blackened off whites are continuing in popularity with Resene Black White and Resene Alabaster a very close first and second. Long-time favourites Resene Spanish White (and variants), Resene Tea (and variants) are still in the top 20 with the lighter variants of these colours being favoured. For a warmer white, Resene Rice Cake is a popular and enduring option in place of creamier off-whites. Resene Pitch Black is a very popular option for exterior weatherboards and fences and is available as a CoolColour™ option to reduce heat and stress on the substrate.
