Neutral Colours

Always in style, the clean, contemporary beauty of neutral and pastel hues never fails to deliver a serenely minimalist feel. Mix up different textures for an edgier look, or contrast bright with dark for added impact. Get inspired by our neutral colour palette for our fibre cement cladding products.

Cobble Stone

Contemporary dove-grey neutral with golden undertones.

Monterey Taupe

Subtle neutral undertones of oyster and seashell converge for a shade of timeless Oxfordshire stone.

Sail Cloth 

Soft hues of undyed linen infused with subtle pearly warmth.

Rich Espresso

This classic dark shades subtle brown pigments infuse warmth into a clean grey base.

Designer’s recommendation

Light neutrals are inspired from the softest colours in nature, like sand and seashells. Use these as an understated accent, or for a whole house. For a more punchy design statement, have a smaller accent in fresh colours such as Mountain Sage or Heathered Moss.
  • Sail Cloth 
    Sail Cloth is for those who love the idea of white, but prefer a softer shade. A hint of this canvas-like color is just the ticket, whether for trim or body. It’s neutral tones can be pared with almost any other colour.
  • Cobble stone
    Cobble Stone is a rich neutral that will look put together on any home. A taupe-based hue with warm undertones, it works particularly well with darker accent colours. No need to overthink this classic choice. Match is with an accent in Timber Bark and a trim in Arctic White.
  • Rich Espresso
    Don’t be afraid of introducing some darkness to your home’s exterior. Ideal for accents, Rich Espresso pairs well with Cobble Stone, Monterey Taupe and Timber Bark. Intense, yet elegant, this shade will add boldness to any home. Pair with a neutral trim and a vibrant accent colour and your home will certainly turn heads.
