Being an apartment dweller I never think much about curb appeal, and while I’m pretty sure our future house is more likely to be white, I fantasize about having a black exterior. Most of the ones I’ve seen that have made me stop breathing are some sort of cottage cabin farmhouse and the boldness of the black makes them so alluring and modern. Many take after Danish summer houses, which are timely for this confused seasonal transition where we’re excited for fall but down to take an idyllic look back at summer. Let’s.
Minus this one in the snow, but isn’t it dreamy?
Anyone getting Edward vibes with this one…^
I get that there are practicality factors to consider going so dark, especially with living somewhere like sunny LA, but I still find the idea irresistible. It’s also one of the few home ideas that O is enthusiastic about and surprisingly made him want to look for one in LA that we could just drive by and admire from afar (there aren’t any according to our limited and short-lived research, makes sense.)
Thoughts? Are you into it?

Love a moody house! Fabulous and modern
I love all of these, they’re so beautiful!
I love the whole black exterior look and I especially like those that have black inside their home too. I am not entirely sure what I want for my future home yet but i am open to the idea of black! If I don’t have a black exterior than I will definitely have black furnishing of some sort. Great inspiration!

I really dig the juxtaposition of colors with the black exterior and the light wood patio furniture <3

My home is black, and we painted our fibro farm cottage black too. Love them, would want black again
I’ve always been drawn to white colored houses. I love bright and airy aesthetics, but all these black houses are so gorgeous. I love how sophisticated a black house can look.
