Paint it blackOct 25, 2010
A recent trip to Amsterdam inspired me to paint all the exterior woodwork and masonry on my house black. For some strange reason in this country we are not too keen to leap over to the dark side when it comes to the exterior of our buildings and yet I think it looks and feels fantastically chic. New York town houses look super sexy when alt the trim goes dark Â it gives oneâs pad an instant upgrade from the normal beige haze of graciousness to something very elegant and sophisticated. Â Not only that but the contrast between the brick and black trim looks phenomenal.
