When deciding on the look for the exterior of your home there are now more colour choices than ever. The colours you choose for your home will not only create street appeal but they will be the first thing you see when you come home at the end of the day. The colour of your exterior can set the tone for your interior inside and can also create beautiful spaces for outdoor living. And now your downpipes and spouting can be incorporated into your home’s look with the Marley Stratus Design Series®. The trend-forward Marley Stratus Design Series® Stormcloud® spouting and matching RP80® downpipes comes in six stylish colours including metallics, Copper and Titanium, as well as Black, White, Ironsand® and Grey Friars®.

The streamline design of the RP80® downpipe has been New Zealand’s most popular downpipe system for more than 30 years, and when paired with the quarter round profile of Marley Stormcloud® spouting, it’s a classically stylish combo. The pairing is ideal for new houses including new builds and the RP80® is available in compact 43˚ bends suitable for tight soffits and stormwater installs, creating greater versatility. The Marley Stratus Design Series® Stormcloud® spouting is extremely versatile and like all Marley products is UV resistant and made in New Zealand.

The practical advantages of the Marley Stratus Design Series® combined with the colour range means you can be more creative with your exterior colour choices without compromising on quality. Get inspired for your exterior and check out these options to pair the Marley Stratus Design Series®  in Grey Friars with popular Resene paint colours.

Classic good looks

For a classic look, pair Marley Stratus Design Series® Stormcloud® spouting with RP80® downpipes in Grey Friars® and weatherboards in Resene Triple Black White. Resene Triple Black White is a light grey that accentuates architectural features and cladding, without the glare of a pure white. Resene Alabaster on trims, soffits and architraves pops against the weatherboards and spouting while Resene Pohutukawa on the front door is a cheerful way to welcome you home.

Blue horizons

Grey and blue are a timeless combination which evokes sea and sky. Marley Stratus Design Series® Stormcloud® spouting with RP80® downpipes in Grey Friars® and seaside blue grey Resene Longitude on the weatherboards are a pairing that creates coastal charm. Resene Space Cadet on the front door adds a splash of style and Resene Solitude on the soffits and trims adds a further hint of blue.

Forest bathing

Greens are a huge design trend and Grey Friars® in the Marley Stratus Design Series® complements a range of Resene greens, including Resene Inside Back on weatherboards or Resene Cutty Sark on your front door. Resene Rice Cake is a white with a touch of green making it ideal for soffits, architraves, and trims.

With the Marley Stratus Design Series® and Resene you’ll find a colour combination for your exterior which you won’t be able to wait to come home to.
