Thought to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited wooden homes in the world, this stunning Faroe Islands, Denmark home demonstrates that black home facades are not a recent phenomenon. Dated to the 11th century, the "King's Farm" home's black color comes from wood treated with a tar mixture and is featured in the impressive Phaidon publication Black: Architecture in Monochrome.
Every open space in this home is decorated, from the walls to the floors. Near the door, the art in the living room continues to reflect the space’s mantra of simple, stylish and serene. A conceptual monochrome of light reflected into a camera lens from PurePhoto (www.purephoto.com) adds a touch of whimsy, while the full length mirror extends the room.
