Lately we’ve been noticing these unusual but eye-catching exteriors around the web — homes that are eschewing the standard whites and neutrals that are often chosen for the outside of a home and instead are boldly going black, or near-black. Check out some of these wonderful structures that have succeeded in making a statement with their exteriors:

In 2014, Pantone announced Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and while the lilac-y tone was fun and bright, we are excited to see more of the 2015 Pantone color — Marsala. Marsala is a warm, rustic brown-hued red that has a versatile and timeless feel that goes great in just about any space. Here are a few fun finds:
Marsala plays well with others! In this living room, the earthy reds of the couch and rug are the perfect compliment to the blue and gold elements.
It also looks great against this sophisticated white palate — you can find hints of Marsala in tons of gorgeous oriental rugs we have here in the showroom!
Marsala can be a vibrant accent wall that adds some POP without being overbearing.
And it can also work as a more subtle splash of color, as with this striped throw.
