I saw it gleaming in the distance and couldn’t quite tell what it was.
While this column doesn’t tend to offer commentary on paint colors–that seems much more personal and an individual matter of taste than well established rules of architecture–it seemed this one was slightly beyond a chartreuse/ neon orange combo. The focus of WTH is the variety of odd remuddling choices people will act out on the exterior of an unsuspecting house: tiny windows in a sea of siding or otherwise bastardizing the original intent of the design.
Had the window and door openings not been treated in the manner they are (what’s UP with the one little window within a boarded up window space?), I may have had to skip this one.
However, as I made my way around to catch the view of the various sides of the house, it seemed too good not to share. And begs the question: should you be able to turn your home into a giant art billboard?
I both gasped and smiled at this thing and have still yet to come up with a final determination… what say you?
