My house is brick, so I don’t have to think about exterior colors much, but if my house were wood or stucco, I’d be really tempted to paint the entire thing black. (Let’s pretend heat absorption wouldn’t be an issue, okay?) As it is, I’ll just have to be satisfied with a black door—and eventually a black porch and cornice.

As with all-white interiors, I really like the way that a monochromatic exterior plays down the details of woodwork and other kinds of trim on older homes. Of course, all-black looks great on more contemporary structures, too!
