Montage: 38 Modern Houses with Black Exteriors

All black ensembles aren’t the only ultra dark looks I’m obsessed with these days. I’ve also been noticing tons of contemporary residences with exteriors clad in, painted, and in some cases weathered (I think) to the darkest black. I’m especially attracted to the homes with strikingly simple silhouettes, almost rustic, but made modern by their overall blackness. Here’s a collection of 38 such architectural examples. Do you have any favorites here? Would you want to live in one? I think I remember reading in Architectural Digest that Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s Hamptons house is painted black, and the neighbors complained.

Montage: 38 Rooms with Long-Armed Sconces

A few years ago it was the bare bulb.  Now everyone’s hanging these super spindly sconces in unexpected places (and sometimes they even have bare bulbs). Over sinks and sofas, from beams, and reaching straight across kitchens, they’re an interesting element, and certainly functional. Some have a mid-century Italian twist, others are more industrial work horses. I guess I like them, though it’s not exactly easy to install a sconce on a whim. I wonder if those who are incorporating them into current projects will feel like they’re trendy/dated in a couple of years. Time will tell. In the meantime, I like them, even if they look like they might reach out and grab you.
