The New Black
Black houses, or technically dark shades of gray, are a growing trend in the residential design world. With bold and daring designs, they are popping up in many of our neighborhoods, while providing contrast and options to the standard color choices typically seen. Done right, these sleek homes can be designed in many traditional ways and also push the limits of our modern thinking.
This clean and modern entry sets the tone for the house. Black walls and glass make a good team.
Classic and Simple Design

The contrast created by the black exterior and the glowing interior of this home really accentuates the warmth found inside. It must be cozy in there!

A Masterful Transformation
This is your typical American ranch house with a very modern interpretation. Add some cool black siding and roof material to your suburban dream and you can shock the world – and your neighborhood!
