dark houses

In Salem, we visited the House of Seven Gables. I fell in love with these houses painted black. Even with their peeling paint, I think they’re beautiful, especially surrounded by bright green tree leaves. Perhaps they’re not so suitable for Los Angeles and its bright sun, but a girl can dream.

    LOVE. It’s totally doable in L.A. I once lived in a little charcoal bungalow with an acid green door that had no central air in Eagle Rock. Maybe I spent some sweltering afternoons in there, but aesthetically? Totally worth it.

    Love those! I’ve been dreaming about painting my house dark, dark gray w/ a red door ever since I moved in.

  3. I love the texture and how they age. So awesome.
