When it comes to the exterior color of our homes, pale and mid-tones rule the roost. A white cottage with dark trim or a medium grey painted Victorian is a crowd-pleaser, and there's nothing wrong with that. But going against the grain can return results just as beautiful, and personally, I love a dark and dramatic facade. Maybe it's because I grew up in the snowy North, where dark houses stand out from the snow in the wintertime, and pale ones often look, well, dirty in comparison. Or maybe I just appreciate the drama of these inky hues, who knows? Check out some examples of dark houses, from traditional Victorians to Modernist dwellings. TOP ROW: 1. Apartment Therapy 2.
