All the Crayons in the Box: Commercial St. and 49th Ave

I drove by this wonderfully coloured home for a couple weeks before I just had to stop and photograph it. I didn’t notice any of the other houses on this very long street so if the intention was to draw attention, it definitely worked! I’ve noticed that many of the differently painted homes are older and maybe a bit run down. Do you think this is an effective way to improve the appearance or just a novelty act? I’d love to hear from you!

Take a look at my other examples from around vancouver of colour being used in Architecture here.

    You know I’d never have guessed but that combination works. Love to see what the inhabitants are wearing.
