Bright colors

My two favorite houses on Selby Ave. in Saint Paul.

Wow these houses are great. Is this style common in Minnesota?

Julie said...

Yes, I agree with MO. The architecture here is really pleasing to the eye and the painting is just terrific. Are the other houses in the street just as 'in your face'? I wonder if it might make them harder to sell - narrow the potential market?

Wonderfully bright colours.

beginning and end of the rainbow right there together. Breathtaking. Now somebody needs to park a yellow, VW beetle between the two houses and we'll be blinded!!!

Thanks for all the kind words!

The architecture is pretty typical to the Twin Cities. The paint job is not. That's why I love these houses!

Great houses and photo for theme day!

There's a lot of character in these old homes and the the paint just give them the right amount of individuality. Nice job.

Selby Avenue is colourful in lots of other ways, too. Good choice.

Nice. The houses have "good bones" and the colors make them a happy sight.
