The other day I was driving down a street here in Los Angeles…in Culver City I think. I noticed a jet black building for rent…commercial space right on a corner across from a gas station. Now there was nothing really remarkable about the building except the bold approach on color.
Got me thinking about the trend I’ve noticed of late…homes of all shapes, styles and sizes painted super dark, even jet black. The opposite of the oh so coveted all white house with a white picket fence. I like this edgy version. A jet black house…with white trim even…makes a bold statement. Oddly fresh and clean in design and style.
What do you think?
Any of these black houses appeal to you? Would you go with the contrasting trim or a softer black or would you go all the way with a super dark jet black look?
Happy September! Happy Tuesday!
