Inspiration in Santa Monica

Thursday, March 15, 2007

Here's a little bit of color inspiration. I was in Santa Monica the weekend before last, and I snapped a picture of this great house, which was still under construction. I love the contrast between the siding, trim and gutters: Chartreuse, hunter green and turquoise are a surprising (and satisfying) combination. I don't think I'd ever seen painted gutters before, but I definitely like it. It adds a kick of color in an unexpected place. Has anyone else ever seen this done?

I think Los Angeles has an incredible share of colorful homes, including Venice, West Hollywood and Silverlake. Some work, some don't. But the courage people have to mix and match colors is incredible. I wonder if other cities are more daring?
