Black Exteriors?!

Happy Fri-yay!!!  I thought I'd take a break from chatting interior spaces, and turn the attention onto the exterior.  I favor the architectural charm of craftsman and farmhouse homes, but something about "modern" facades also strike me - especially those painted black or a deep charcoal!

I wouldn't dare paint our entire house black, as it would stick out like a sore thumb in our established and rather traditional neighborhood.  It's not the look we want anyway.  But I must say... there is just something that speaks to me about the power of black.  Maybe our courtyard walls could get a dose of black?!
