Painted Black Houses
There are so many shades of black to consider. This single swatch chart shows how depth and tone come into play when selecting the perfect paint color. I recommend taking swatches and paint samples home with you to test out.
It’s surprising how versatile black paint can be. The architecture of this apartment complex pops in a metropolitan area; I love the white trim accents. Below, a secluded cabin takes a bold stand in front of its astounding natural backdrop.
Project: Exterior Refresh
Recently kitchen and bath designer, Sarah Blank, and I were discussing ways to refresh a home’s exterior. Sarah mentioned wanting to paint the exterior of her house black for a fresh look. I was instantly intrigued, recently having seen a modern 80’s home in the Hamptons. The house’s exterior was painted black and it looked fabulous! Afterward, I set out to explore different shades of black for various styles of homes. Regardless of whether they are traditional, gothic, mid century, modern, barn or cottage-style homes, once painted black, a home is instantly given a wonderfully exotic aesthetic.
