Ideas for black paint colors for exteriors?

Posted by Kiwigem (My Page) on

Hi! We are building a rustic modern home. The siding is mainly varied-width vertical cedar, but we have some board and batten, creating a color-blocked effect. I'm inspired by the northern european black cottages I've been seeing, and thinking I'd like to paint the board and batten black. Anyone have any suggestions for a black that doesn't look halloween-ish and would blend nicely with a natural landscape?
Thanks!

Here's a link to a wonderful blog -- the owner (and a great designer) painted the modern exterior in black -- add a aged steel accent wall (in front of their bedroom) and new gardens .....

We used a black by Sherwin Williams called Inkwell, for a front door on a brick home. It had some green in it, which youd probably want. In fact you may want a very very dark green that reads as black.

What I wish I could find is that Swedish paint- falu rodfarg in black- but I don't think they sell it in the states.

What is that beautiful black someone was considering on another thread a few months ago? It was Farrow & Ball. I'm going to go look for the name. I'll play some Muzak for you while I'm Googing it.

I'm back! It's Farrow and Ball Railings.

The Farrow and Ball color is gorgeous. Wonder if I could have it color matched? It's wicked expensive!
