Contemporary cool A bold, clean-lined design in moody dark colours was the look chosen by David and Caroline for their new build. Painted in Resene Double Cod Grey, the Resene Gull Grey pergola gives the house a strong, imposing street presence and lightens the dark grey cladding. The Marley Stratus Design Series® in Grey Friars finishes off the exterior perfectly. By using the Typhoon® profile with external brackets, it gives the house a more traditional look yet allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. With a 15 year guarantee, it will not rust, is UV resistant and made in New Zealand. “Having Grey Friars roofing and joinery, made picking the spouting a simple decision to complement the overall colour scheme,” says David. Stylish detailing is the icing on the cake, whatever the look of your home. G one are the days when your beautifully designed home is brought up short by the necessary addition of spouting and downpipes. These elements haven’t traditionally been visually appealing… but that’s all changed thanks to the Stratus Design Series® created by Marley. Marley Stratus Design Series® offers durable, low-maintenance and functional spouting solutions, with style and colour choices that will enhance any location and home design whether it’s contemporary or classic, rustic or coastal. Architectural appeal Paul Russell’s New Plymouth home is a modern space which ties in seamlessly with its surroundings. Marley Stratus Design Series® Typhoon® spouting and RP80® downpipes in stunning Copper complement the home’s cedar cladding (get the look with Resene Woodsman Natural), and add an interesting reflective quality. “The half round profile with external brackets gives a lot more interest to the eaves as they generally look bland,” says Paul. He was also impressed by the Marley range’s durability against rough winds and salty sea air. Made from uPVC, the products don’t rust and hold their colour for much longer than less attractive alternatives. Resene Ironsand where style meets Copper Grey Friars durability
