Color Gone Wrong
Horribly Horribly Wrong

Anyone who knows me well or who has ever been in my home knows that I am not afraid of color. Quite the contrary. For years my motto has been "life is too short to have all white walls" and I have been unafraid to live out that motto. HOWEVER, this is a bit much, and a prime example of when a strict homeowners association would have been a good thing!

It is a well-kept house, and a professionally applied paint job, but WHAT WERE THEY THINKING??? There are five distinct colors partyin' on this house: orange, lime, purple(imitation stone is bad enough, but painting it PURPLE?), teal, and dark orange(the front door).

I'm thinking of developing a tv show called "What Not to Wear if You Are a House" and this will be the pilot episode. A candidate for episode two is right down my street. Unfortunately(?) I do not have a photo to share, but you can't miss it when you pass by because the color is so loud you can hear it screaming YELLOW YELLOW YELLOW YELLOW DAMNIT YELLOW.
