The popularity of black facade colour has risen steadily.
Black has been a popular choice especially for new wooden facades, which is not surprising. Black manages to be subdued, dramatic, timeless and trendy, all at the same time.
For the fan of the streamlined style, the black D129 Korppi is a great choice. If you want to bring other shades alongside black but keep the overall look subdued, you should include dark gray in the details.
In buildings representing traditional style, black has rarely been used as the main colour. The use of black in such a case should be weighed against the rest of the environment. The most traditional colour combination with black is white.
How to combine colours with black D129 Korppi
The black D129 Korppi is a minimalistic facade colour.
Scandinavian streamlined design and black are a good match, creating a timeless wooden facade.
A black house can be matched with the dark grey Q481 Noki or Q805 Liuske, for example. Noki can be fitted on window frames and doors, for example, and Liuske is a good alternative for the sockel.
The more classic colour palette combines black with light details such as window frames.
Alongside black, light does not have to be pure white and yet the contrast is sufficient. It is better to choose a broken light shade, which makes the whole look calmer in the landscape. Our recommended colour combination includes Q802 Haikara.
