The series five colors are Twilight Black, Safari Green, Sandbar (beige-brown), Mountain Peak (brown-rust) and Cliff (grey-beige) and were developed to complement the ambiance of today’s American home, he noted. “These colors are a blend of many rich hues found in nature; each plays a specific role in complementing many other residential/commercial surfaces.”
