Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain. What a name! It’s a mountain made of IRON.

In these photos below, check out how architect Jeffery Povero used Iron Mountain to make his New York apartment seem larger: painting the window recesses white helps the dark color dematerialize at the edges.

He also maximized space in his 860-square-foot apartment with custom shelving in the bedroom, which provides tons of vertical storage. Limiting the palette to gray, white and orange helps keep things looking orderly, too.

Here’s another shot of Iron Mountain in an 18th-century Pennsylvania farmhouse designed by Robert Goodwin:
