Cute cottage but the paint job ruins it IMO.

Re: Black home with white trim

This style looks nice in black and white and the red brick adds color.  It's cute, but I wouldn't have a black exterior.  

 

Since my area is historical, we have colonial building and color codes, so no, I won't be seeing black houses.

@jeanlake   What a charming house!  Love the door!  I would have gone with navy and white, but this is okay.  Good luck to your son!

Black and white, always a classic, yet couldn't be hotter right now, @jeanlake .   What fairy tale charm that house has!

 

Your son sounds super!

I imagine some neighbors will not be pleased with the house painnted black.

Not sure what your son's career has to do with his choice of exterior paint color. You trying to justify it, perhaps?


@queendivaShe doesn't have to justify it. It is what her son likes. As for the neighbors not an issue. The house is well maintained, so they don't get to decide what color scheme he favors either.

@jeanlakePlease post an updated picture when he chooses the color for the door. I think that will bring this entire look together. I really admire people that step out of the box, and choose to go with such a bold look.

Re: Black home with white trim

Hi Patriot. The smaller homes on bigger lots are architecturally attractive in son's neighborhood. Navy was his first color choice but a house nearby is painted this way. He also liked dark gray, but the house across the street got painted first. Homes, near downtown, built before 1950s have historical codes and approval, but his house is 1950s.

Re: Black home with white trim

I love it and I would keep the door white as in the picture. 

I want to enter that door and see what's inside.
