Top twenty

From the What's New archive - August 2010...

For the second time in Resene’s history, Resene has launched an official top 20 paint colour list based on the sales of Resene testpots. 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. These hues are generally teamed with brighter accents and features for a complete colour scheme.
