Black + white - 1 house, 4 looks.

Updated: Jul 11, 2019

If there is one thing you can bet on, it's that when our eyes are open, we can find inspiration anywhere.

I continuously find myself drawn to minimalism and simplicity; loving natural products and utilitarian design choices. I guess this is also why classic black and white takes the forefront over and over again. I mean colour is a beautiful thing but if you are choosing it for something that you may not be able to change for a long time, like the exterior of your home, there can be alot said about playing it safe and keeping it timeless.

Saltbox Design

This picture taken in Brigus offers so much inspiration. The style of the home, the setting... this to me is a home that will never look dated or wrong. In all fairness though, I've never seen a saltbox that didn't win my heart and they do look breathtaking in colour. But this one in black and white just has everything right.

Taking inspo from this picture and using the Benjamin Moore inspiration tool, I have put together 4 different exterior looks with some variation of black and white. So without any further rambling, I'll let the pictures speak ...

Tip: Keep in mind that paint colours may vary depending on lighting. The architecture and features of a home should also be carefully considered before starting any design project. It's always a good idea to pick up tester pots of paint and apply in the actual space before starting your project. The paint should be viewed throughout different times of the day to get a real feel for whether or not it is right.

Design should also be fun, so be true to your own taste and personality!
