You already know we’re huge fans of white, but we also love using dark, rich colors to make an impact. Lately we’ve spotted a few black houses pop up throughout East Costa Mesa and we’re so excited to see people taking a walk on the dark side. It can be extremely intimidating to go all out and paint your exterior black, but when it’s done in the right way it can make a dramatic visual statement.
If you’re thinking of painting your home black but you are still on edge, we suggest breaking up the darkness with white highlighting. This can be done by using white for the trim on windows and doors to create an even balance of light and dark elements. A contrasting front door color can also help soften the bold look. In this post we shared some of our favorite black exteriors, now all we need is a client who is willing to take the plunge!
