At Golden & Pine we tend to focus on our home interior, but first impressions are everything, right? We’re going to take a little bit to talk about our new favorite exterior home colors and they’re all dark ones! Deep, dark colors are a little scary, but we think the outcome is stunning.

One of the best things about a dark exterior home is the possibilities of mixing in colors on doors, windows and trim. We love the look of this dark charcoal gray with the stark white trim and the pop of color with the orange door.


The mix of the garden and the greenery below is a great way to soften a dark color. This cottage style home looks so dreamy with the bright white shutters and the soft white roses growing up the house.

Dark Homes

We love mixing a natural wood with just about anything. This combination of the dark wood, the deep navy and the slim white trim on this home is perfect!

Dark Exteriors

This dark gray and natural wood is gorgeous on this modern home. The maroon door adds just enough color but not too much to take away from the rest of the home.

Dark Gray And Wood

I took the plunge about a year ago and painted my own home a deep, dark navy (much to my neighbor’s chagrin), with black window frames and just one pop of yellow on the front door and we LOVE it.  We’re actually moving to a new house in a few months and our house exterior will be what I miss the most for sure!
