Black Is the New Gray

Gray and "greige" will remain popular, but black is the new color darling for 2014. In a Houzz poll, 74 percent of homeowners admitted to being a fan of black rooms, from bathrooms and kitchens (with crisp white fixtures) to interior doors and exterior siding. We're even seeing people paint the outside of their house black as a way to modernize an older home.
