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:
