Dreaming in Colour

The Residence Collection shares the most popular shades for its heritage-inspired timber alternative windows.

When you think of heritage windows, what do you see? A bright white sliding sash window set in an Victorian style townhouse? Dark painted wooden frames on historic terraces? Or natural shades standing out from whitewashed cottage walls?

R9, Irish Oak

This vintage-focused design might sound like a dream, but it’s exactly the aesthetic that can be found in The Residence Collection’s Colour Collection. These windows are perfect for introducing the contemporary living advantages as well as benefits that come with uPVC windows, but with the design of the traditional heritage windows. Spanning across their R9, R7 and R2 window designs, the collection categorises its 26 shades into six unique colour themes, helping you choose the right shade for your home. With the Colour Collection, that is continuing to expand, there is more choice than ever. Here, experts at The Residence Collection share the three most popular shades.

From the earth

Clay is a rich and natural colour, inspired by the clay riverbanks cutting through the Gloucestershire countryside. Ideal for replicating traditional woodwork, it is the perfect complement for architectural styles mixing the modern and historic. Bright pops of colour – like interior furniture or a bold front door – will stand out against the neutral tone.

Sophisticated sage

The most popular shade – Sage – matches the Farrow and Ball aesthetic that dominates countryside kitchens, urban renovations and upmarket developments. It is a beautiful, muted and natural shade that would pair seamlessly with the verdant garden outside or vibrant houseplants indoors. With more homeowners than ever turning to nature to add character to their homes, it’s easy to understand why Sage fits the bill for so many.

Standout feature

Noir is the most popular of the dark and moody hues, offering an impeccable blend of new and old. Dark frames have a distinctive architectural look, and the unsurpassable depth and drama of this shade allows your windows and doors to shine as a standout feature. If you want a house that leaps out from the crowd, then Noir is the way to go.
