White railing works well with any deck board and complements brick, shingles, stucco, or vinyl and fiber-cement siding. It’s a great look for stairs and porches, too. Fiberon Symmetry Railing features a classic profile in a sturdy, low-maintenance composite that never needs paint or stain.
Brass accents pop against the cool grays of this contemporary living room. A sleek wood panel turns the TV wall into a focal point, and also ties in with a picture rail that runs the length of a long wall, a nod to interiors past. A modern brass sofa table teams with a pair of side tables to create symmetry that helps harmonize the space.
Sure, a stained wood deck is nice, but treat it to a coat of black paint and the look becomes significantly more elegant. “Black is versatile and dramatic,” says designer Stephanie Wilson. “Here, the black decking and rail acts as a strong base for the white walls and window trim; the black French doors tie the decking and the walls together and adds a lovely element of symmetry.”
