We get LOTS of questions and comments asking for advice on the best paints to replicate the look. Today we want to make it easy on you.

Black paint looks classic with white, makes green plants pops, and also pairs so beautifully with natural wood.

Becki Owens Villa Bonita Project

For the painted exterior of my Villa Bonita Project, I mixed my own custom paint to get the perfect white for this house. Working with Benjamin Moore, I started with their no pigment white and mixed in a touch of black. Don’t be afraid to request modifications if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for!

Paint can completely transform your exterior. Consider black and white for a classic look that feels both modern and timeless.
