For All Seasons

The dark exterior of this house caught my eye, and I love how striking it looks within the natural forest setting. The black looks gorgeous against the green shades of summer, and surely it must look equally as incredible against the warm tones of autumn and a pure white snow in winter.

Beautiful contrasts - not only with the black, but the hard edges against the soft green grasses & trees .
I also love the contemporary cabin feel ... .
