FAQ: Warren & Mahoney colors.


Every now and again we're asked "what are the Warren & Mahoney colors?"

So here they are:

Blockwork - pure white (inside and out)
Opening window / door sashes - Hairy Heath (rust)
Window / door frames - Mongoose (tan)

Warren & Mahoney used these colors almost exclusively during the 60s and 70s and the rust color was known as "Warren Tan" in the office at the time. No idea where the scheme originated?

These are the Resene names, but you could mix up any brand to the same color. And they were always applied nice and glossy, rich and wet-looking.

Miles' also had a fondness for orange which he used in the W&M logo and a grey-ish blue, often used to paint concrete lintels and foundations.
