Another great tip we have when designing exteriors is to add contrast. Contrast is a principle of design that creates interest in a space. Because of the juxtaposition of opposing elements, contrast adds another dynamic layer to the design. Similarly, this concept of contrast used in exteriors brings the same idea. Embracing contrast can add depth and interest to the exterior as well. We have put together a few examples of those who have embraced contrast. Whether it be subtly through dark windows and metals, or through loud walls, contrast can make all the difference.
