New Barnwood and Timberwolf colours

Barnwood evokes resilience and authenticity. With weathered character and rustic charm, Barnwood gives a welcoming personality to the townhouse, as much as to a home outside the city.

Timberwolf brings subtle intensity in a classic, yet on-trend colour, evoking the commanding presence of this dignified prince of the forest.
