Habitat plus - welcome

There’s a reason why various ‘white’ and neutral paint colours top the list of most popular Resene colours each year. They’re just so versatile.

While Resene is well-known for its daring fashion colour fandecks, the Resene Whites & Neutrals collection is the one that home decorators turn to again and again to create a baseline palette for their homes. There are 28 palette cards with 12 colours on each. Often, those colours are from the same colour 'family', and are variants of one colour. This makes it easier to build a colour scheme.

While many of the 'whites' in the collection are in demand, a wide range of mid-toned neutrals and darker tones are well represented in the collection from silvery greys, to warm taupes and moody blacks.

We show you the range of whites and neutral paint colours available, help you choose the right one for your project, how to add interest to a neutral scheme and give you suggestions of some on-trend accent colours to try.

Happy decorating!

The Whites & Neutrals Collection

The Resene Whites & Neutrals collection is one of the most popular and comprehensive collections of all of those you will find at your local Resene ColorShop. Arranged over 28 handy palette cards, it showcases more than 330 colours from bright whites, through calming neutrals to moody darks. Each palette card has 12 colours, often from the same colour family, so that you can easily contrast and compare your colour choices. To further refine your choices, see the A4 colour sample sheets in the colour library at each Resene ColorShop and selected resellers.
