I for sure want the house to be black. Every house I feel drawn to for its exterior apperance is always black. I want to use Falu rödfärg with black pigment. It is a emulsion paint which is the traditional paint used on houses only with black pigmentation. If you have any experience of that kind of paint I would love to hear from you. My understanding is that it easy maintance and does not coat the wood like most other paints do making the wood suseptible to moisture but lets the wood breathe. And is pretty much a natural product. One thing that I really like is the contrast between the black facade and wooden doors or the other way around. I am qiute certain the front door has to be in either oak or teak.
