Haute House Hues

There has been a movement afoot towards moody, dark, exterior home colors. Black homes are suddenly considered chic, not witchy. And I love the drama!

I already shared that I was considering going dark on my home’s exterior - I’m thinking a deep gray with black trim. You can see the colors I’ve been pondering below.

I love this photo of a deep gray home that’s of the same architectural vintage as mine. It’s given me a lot of inspiration!

Deep green is another option I’ve considered...

I even thought about brown for a moment, but thought it might make my vintage 1960s home, seem, well, sort of ‘70s, and I don’t want anyone to think there is wall-to-wall shag inside. But paired with crisp white trim, it sure is pretty on this traditional style home.

And then sometimes the classicist side of me pops out and asks “What’s wrong with white!?”

So will dark and dramatic win the day? Or will classic and clean step in at the last minute? This is the last decision I have to make on my home renovation, so it isn’t over until the painters arrive. And even then, I’ve probably got a day or two of prep for last-minute decisions! Let me know what you think, too!

Warmly,
