Charles Erwin, of Winkworth’s Notting Hill office, the fashionable area of prime West London where many design trends start, highlights the age of the black exterior in the latest episode of The Property Exchange, Winkworth’s podcast, How To Sell Your Home in Seven Seconds.
He tells listeners: “Notting Hill is known for its colourful houses and picture postcard pastels. The latest trend is houses painted black, making a statement in a street of white stucco or pastel shade exteriors. It looks good if you want to be different and stand out in the street. Black facades started appearing in W11 and are now spreading to mews houses in W6 and have also been spotted in Kensington W8.”
Moving on from grand facades, Notting Hill colour palettes for front doors are changing too, from racing green, black, navy and burgundy to pastel shades of blue and pink, according to Charles Erwin.
