A Black & White House with Geometric Details

Located within Yalding in Kent, the Trish House is clad in traditional Kentish black and white boards in such a way that creates a geometric facade full of interesting shapes. Designed by architect Matthew Heywood, the six-bedroom home sits back from the road and is surrounded by lush green gardens providing privacy.

The windows provide unique views into the home, while keeping the interior nice and bright.

The ground floor’s exterior is painted white while the upstairs is covered in black, continuing the graphic appeal of the design.

The massive living room features floor-to-ceiling windows with views to the backyard. There’s a suspended fireplace that hangs from the second floor and down through the open stairwell.

The white walls and dark stained floors mimic the color scheme from the exterior. Light grey furnishings mixed with black pieces keep the space monochromatic.

The monochromatic color palette continues into the kitchen and dining room with the exception of three apple green pendants above the dining table. I love the bright color against the stark white surroundings.

Skylights were built into the roof which allows light to cascade down through the double-height stairwell.

The lighting throughout the house is where they brought color into each room. A turquoise glass pendant hangs in a sitting room.
