ABC Wednesday: U is for unusual

 This Victorian house is now a duplex. It's recently had a new paint job with at least six colors.  Pretty unusual, if not elegant especially for the neighborhood.  Linked to ABC Wednesday.

  1. That is outstanding. You really must have a vision of what you want and how it will look before going to the paint store.

  2. Definitely unusual. The purple reminds me of a house with that colour we would pass going to see my grandparents.

  6. The color's match perfectly with each other. Otherwise it could be a pain in the eye but not here. Somebody has it nicely thought out.

  13. Wonder what the Victorians would have thought? But then again, they did put up some surprisingly colourful buildings in London.
