Classic Black & White Exterior

Dark, glossy doors and black-and-white striped awnings add punch to a classic white house.

"I've always loved black-painted doors, but lately they've become a serious obsession," admits Courtney Barnes, designer and author of the popular Style Court blog. "This Hollywood house with an intimate garden is the quintessential example of that enduring look."
