Painted House

We have lots of colorfully painted houses, but this one on New Britain Avenue in Hartford attracts special attention.  Maybe it stands out because it is at a prominent site on a main thoroughfare or maybe because of the unconventional color combination.

Unconventional but charming...must be the high-pitched roof.

Two yellows and one green, that is a but unusual, but it works.

There clearly is no home owners' association in this neighborhood and no architectural control committee that must give approval for exterior paint colors.

I love the style of this house Jack but the colours are a bit too funky for my liking ... It would look nicer painted in a soft grey but its beautifully maintained and obviously the occupants like orange & green.

It reminds me of a flag. I'm sure this house is well-remembered! :)

Looks like a happy place.

Very interesting Jack!

I was thinking just what David said - certainly isn't a deed-restricted neighborhood. Florida has some very colorful homes, but they are in the old neighborhoods before homeowners associations or in Miami!

Interesting colors and although I might have chosen differently, these do work with the style of the house. I would have put the stronger colors on the bottom, however.

I wonder if they were given some paint samples and decided to make do with those.

They should have added a red layer to make traffic lights.
