When Going Grey is Good: New Resene Woodsman Greywash

With the popularity in Scandi style finishes, whitewash finishes, such as Resene Colorwood Whitewash, have swung into popularity in recent years. They are a very forgiving option for less than perfect timber, allowing the grain to show through but helping to distract attention away from less desirable imperfections.

Timber coloured floors and walls bring a warm glow to a room. But in areas that are subject to high humidity over summer, a cooler timber finish is desired, that will fit with the popular of blackened whites, such as Resene Alabaster and Resene Black White. This desire to combine timber with a cooler colour palette has fuelled the interest in whitewashed finishes.

For some though, a whitewashed finish is too white and they need a softer look. The whitewashed look has evolved into a greywash alternative for interiors, and now a greywash look for exteriors with Resene Woodsman Greywash. Available in two strengths tinted from Resene Woodsman Whitewash, the grey finishes are a softer more broody look, ideal teamed with black and when white is just too glary outdoors.

The Resene Woodsman Greywash finish is versatile and can be used on weatherboards, fences and other landscaping features, or to bring the greywashed effect inside, you can switch to Resene Colorwood Greywash.

Resene Woodsman Greywash is also available in handy testpots from Resene ColorShops so designers can experiment with it on timber offcuts to check it is right for the project to complement the rest of its Resene colour palette.
