This is my parents' home in North Seattle. Although I wasn't too hot on the color at first, I grew to like it. It especially looks good in the dull winter months when the flowers are asleep, and really adds a splash of color to our yard.
The house was built in 1930 and has had minor renovations over the years. If you have any photos of houses with cool colors, send me a link in the comments and I'll check them out!
