black paint I love the paint jobs on these SF buidings. Spotted on Remodelista, via The NY Times. Projects by EnvelopeAD and Malcom Davis Architecture.
OOh, never thought I would like that but I LOVE it!!
Wow – I absolutely adore!
yes! i love the bottom one especially.
I was considering doing this myself. We might be building a house and found a plan that looked GREAT in black with white trim. It’s a little scary but I think it really POPS!
Seriously I love these buildings, especially the Stable Cafe, it has some good eats!
Looks very sleek but approachable!
Never seen them before! Now I want to go find the buildings! I only live 40 minutes away!
what a very brave thing to do!
I think it payed off too.
a neighbour on my Victorian street painted her entire house white a few years ago. bricks, woodwork, absolutely everything but the front door which got a bright red treatment. well, that was very controversial & the talk was flying! (it worked as well, in my opinion)!
I adore black paint on houses. One of my favorite homes in the world is painted black – there are a few pix of it at the bottom of this post.
I am hoping to paint ours black one day, my hubby needs to be convinced…
I love white houses with red doors, Carol! Good for them!
I am heading there this weekend, so excited!
Wow! Black has never looked so chic!
Cool! Have you seen Derek Jarman’s Prospect Cottage? Black tarred timber with yellow trim:
oooooh! I love black houses and I’ve been dreaming of painting my own house high gloss black, with white trim…..someday
LOVE it! My parents’ house is a really dark dark gray, and they bought it that way. All the neighbors are begging them to change it, but they like it too much. They’re calling it the Black Pearl. 🙂
who would’ve thought black paint could look so great on a building?
