Desire to Inspire)

Why must lovely dark houses keep popping up and persuading me to paint my house charcoal! Dammit!!! I know, I live in the desert. It is a HORRIBLE idea to paint my house almost black when it can easily get over 100 degrees for three months and I have no insulation.

Oh but I LOVE it SO much. When is form better than function?

    Gorgeous! And the house next door looks like it might be interesting, too

    I also live in the desert in a beautiful mid-century home with terrible insulation. Dear lord do not paint it charcoal. Fight the urge! Your house will look lovely but you will be an angry sweaty person all summer long.

    The last black house you posted looked great… but this one looks like a nightmare!

    If I was going to visit this family they would end up with nothing more than a ding-dong-ditch after a few seconds in front of that entrance!

    I do however think your house would look great in grey.
