The Black houseThis house has a little bit of Scandinavian bones and a little bit of rustic country house, but it is definitely catching the eye with its deep, almost black siding which were offset by blond wood accents and the addition of rustic stone work. Set in the countryside, the colors of fall is playing well with the colors of the house. They added the colors of fall in the rich terracotta finish in the bath room an patio floors.
