The geometry of this two-story house is enhanced by a limited color palette: off-white and jet black. This scheme is carried from the exterior to the interior, where it is used to clearly distinguish different surfaces.
Using various shades and tints of the same color adds visual depth. Shades are achieved by mixing a color with black and tints are obtained by mixing with white.
Hues that contrast create vibrant spaces. Use this budget-friendly painting trick to dramatically change the look of your home.
