I love these Blue Homes!

Especially No. 6...a striking red, white and blue home located in Annapolis, Maryland USA.

We painted our first home a gray blue just before we moved out and I was so disappointed to see that the new owners re-painted the house a light tan color after they moved in.  Actually... I was more than disappointed... I broke out sobbing in the car as we drove by when I saw their new paint color.  My Hubby was so shocked by my emotional reaction and so was I.    

I always wondered if we could have sold it without the new paint job and saved ourselves some money.  

You never know.  

But the original color wasn't that great...medium green with dark green trim. 

What's your favorite house color?

  1. I love these blue homes. Don't you think house color may have a cultural aspect? I know that some cultures prefer yellow homes. Our house is red brick ... I'm keeping it! :D :D :D

  2. I love any color as long as it's blue! LOVED this mosaic! Guess what color my house is???!!! Thanks,

  3. Hi Sandy,
    Nice to catch up again.
    Although my favourite colour is green, if I was to paint a house it would be blue with a white trim. Lovely but we always live in brick houses so we don't have all that maintenance.

  4. Very cool mosaic of all the blue homes. Blue is my favorite color and it is the color of our home. Lovely mosaic.

  5. Well, I would have to say that my favorite house color is... red! ;)

    But these blue houses are really wonderful too. I could definitely live in a blue house... :)

  6. I love your mosaic, I love those blues! Blue is my favorite color but I think I'd love a bright blue door and blue shutters!

  7. Striking blue homes! I once painted a home light gray and liked it a lot. I think I like classic white homes with a vivid red door or perhaps a buttery yellow house with lots of white trim or maybe a brown house with... Hopeless!

  8. Wow, fabulous mosaic. Grey is my favorite colour with a blue or red door.

  9. I love the one with the bike out front! What beautiful and vibrant pictures! Thanks for sharing them with us :)

  10. Great photo's thanks for sharing!
    Have a great week,
    Best regards,

  11. Great inspirational images! I cannot imagine seeing all your hard work repainted by the new owners... I hope to never see what happens to the *inside* of our home if we ever move! ;)
