On my way home from work everyday I pass this house. It has been one of my favorite houses since I first moved here. The simple elegance of the lavender shutters against the cool gray stone makes me smile.
Or at least it used to make me smile.
About a week ago the owners drastically changed the color scheme.
Now the house is painted bright red with lavender accents.
When I first saw the color change I was shocked. I couldn’t believe they messed with perfection!
After a few days of staring at it, the new color scheme is starting to grow on me, I might even like this new look better than the old. One of the things I love about Italian homes is the use of color, and this is definitely some color!
What do you think? Before or After?
