the paint-it-black strategy as adding instant cool. “You make a building black, and it instantly becomes a place for people wearing black. It’s a way of saying, ‘Aren’t we a hip place? Come in and buy a $12 cocktail.’”King notes that he has seen and heard of new or newly painted all-black buildings in

4. Red Door With a Dramatic Black ExteriorSpeaking of drama, this house, with its pure black siding color and splash of red on the front door, has it in spades. Yes, such a dark color is more likely to fade from exposure to the sun, and yes, this color will absorb a lot of heat, which will get transferred
Proposing an all-black exterior can be a little Stephen King scary for homeowners, and even designers. Breaking it up with white highlighting and a brightly hued front door helps the house get a warmer reception.
Like King, I remember the first time I noticed an all-black house, and it was a
head-turning experience. “When they are well done, they are the exception,” he says. “But when it goes from being one or two black buildings in a neighborhood to six or eight buildings within blocks of each other, it becomes something else.”

Love the look, but I feel like black is a bad idea in the desert

The aptly named Black House is a renovation that strives to stand out amongst the "pink house fabric of suburban Phoenix," as the architect describes it.
