As we enter into our second wave of at-home awards shows, we’re getting yet another look at the glam interiors and exteriors of A-listers. Kaley Cuoco, who was nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV Series for her role in “The Flight Attendant” at the Golden Globes on Sunday, Feb. 28, gave her followers a look at her $12 million home in Hidden Hills, Calif., and the black-on-black paint job is anything but gloomy.

Cuoco, dressed in a gorgeous star-sequined Oscar de la Renta ball gown, posed on the back patio of her home, painted a deep charcoal gray with black trim.

Despite the dark color scheme, the house gives off a modern vibe rather than gothic vampire castle (though, if that’s your aesthetic, you do you). This is most likely due to the fact that Cuoco opted for a dark, warm gray rather than true black. The light beige stonework on her patio, as well as the warm stone facade on the portion of the house directly behind her, helps to balance out the dark hue making the entire aesthetic read chic rather than bleak.

Dark tones have become more popular for both modern and classic homeowners. Charcoal-colored antique townhouses have begun to pop up in cities across the country, standing out from the crowd.

And those who love the modern farmhouse aesthetic are turning to dark grays, blues, and black to push the modern feel without altering the classic farmhouse structure. It also looks great when paired with brick.

Going dark with your house paint can feel like a big risk because it is such a drastic color change. Ease into it with a charcoal or slate color like Cuoco’s, and chances are you’ll find yourself fully comfortable existing on the dark side.
