Midnight Magic | 0508

This special mid century home was designed by architect Saul Zaik. It was recently on the market, represented by Gabrielle Enfield of Living Room Realty. For an exterior refresh of the 1965 home, the sellers consulted with Miller Paint to help find colors that felt current, yet honored the home’s history. For the front doors, they chose Venetian Glass | H0079, from Miller Paint’s Historic Collection – an unexpected, fresh green. For the body color they chose Midnight Magic | 0508 – a black with navy undertones.
