Black is the new black in home color choice.

I noticed recently that there seems to be an influx in the number of houses that are painted black. It’s always interesting to me to watch how the styles change over time and to see things that would have been too bold a few years ago start to become normal. I’ve always liked black as a color choice for homes and I’ve watched over the years as people started choosing black for things like floors and countertops then sometimes trim but lately I’ve notice a lot of places where people went all the way with the black paint so I decided to start taking some pictures of Portland’s black buildings. Enjoy!
