Straight Black

A black house is something quite special, black clothing very usual. While black or dark clothes put up a nice contrast and overrun some ‘uneven’ parts black buildings look like Stonehenge-monolith. In a landscape colours disappear in the far space of the light pastel and blue colour of the sky. Dark colours are found up front, spend shade and are often at a frightening size beyond the human ones.
Black for improving the readability of letters or signs may be helpful but is a difficult colour on buildings, which can only be used by great eloquence of the architect. If so, the house might be of anĀ  exquisite appearance.
