Little Pink Houses for You and Me



























 


IMG_2299












I know pink houses aren't for everyone, but I like them. I live in one of these beauties pictured above, and I love it (except for my cockknocker landlord)! I can't say I would have the balls (eggs? nards? ovaries? gonads?) to paint a house pink if it wasn't already that color, but maybe I would. Maybe.

I am generally NOT a fan of pink but some of these houses are spectacular. I could see me in a few of 'em.

We saw heaps of pink houses while we were in Italy and I fell in love. Pink isn't normally a color I'd think about painting a house, but they were all so beautiful! Love this collection.

Erin Elizabeth said...

I would actually live in a couple of those. I think I can guess which one is yours...And you're absolutely right - it's very cute! :)

I would so love a little pink house on the beach!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

You live in a pink house?! Just one more reason for me to think you're awesome. :)

Lady Ren said...

Iva said...

number 8 down...LOVE!!!

i'm not sure i would have the guts to paint my house pink either but if i found one like that, i wouldn't hold back. and if one of those homes is really yours then i'm jealous man. how can you not be happy coming home...like ever?! they're all so cute!

Morgan said...

I love looking at them but I couldn't live in one!

Dancing Branflake said...

Yay for pink houses! It's like a real life Barbie house. You gotta have an awesomely quirky personality to live in a pink house. I bet Betsey Johnson lives in a pink house.

Chessa! said...

these are awesome. they're also not for me but I can still admire them.

In Buenos Aires the building equivalent of the White House in DC is the Pink House - La Casa Rosada. It's the most hideous shade of Pepto Bismol pink/rose/mauve I've ever seen....

Annie said...

love these!! i'd take a pink house! on the beach preferably ;)

hope you are having a great day hun!!

Hanako66 said...

it should come as no surprise that i would totally live in a pink house

Shorty said...

I think in the right environment pink houses are perfect. They remind me of Miami, Florida! And other tropical places I've been to. Makes me want to get away!

ANDWHATELSEISTHERE said...

i bet you'll fall for my neighbours's house. they have it painted in exactly that shade of pink amongst all other boringly white dull houses. my dad always mocks about theirs but i just think it's daring and totally stands out. i guess i don't get older people's tastes somehow. haha.

I think some of those houses are so cute!

tulpen said...

I would live in a pink house, but it would have to be after I divorce my husband, 'cause he would never...

I'll live vicariously and pinkly through you.

Caroline said...

Love em! OK...cockknocker...LMFAO! I love learning new words like this :)

JenRem said...

NO WAY! You live in a pink house?! You just went up 27 knotches on my cool meeter. For reals - that's awesome!
Did you know that there is a hotel only a few blocks from my house that is all pink? Like inside AND out?! Seriously... http://book.bestwestern.com/bestwestern/productInfo.do?propertyCode=23089&disablenav=false&sob=C22

Katy Mary said...

I love all of these, they are just so fun and make me think of the beach lol. Jealous you live in one!

Andhari said...

Actually pink houses aren't so bad. It's just about what pink do people use to paint their houses? I'm not feeling the really bright pink but pink tones are okay for me :) some of those houses look good! Fresh!

pearls said...

i could totally live in a pink house...

Ellie Grace said...

How precious! These remind me of some houses that were in my hometown, where I grew up. My sisters and I call them "the Barbie houses" for reasons quite obvious... I actually took a picture of them so I would always remember!

Always,

Down and Out Chic said...

i'd live in a pink house in a heartbeat. b would not so i'm not sure that would work.
you live in one of these? WOW!

adrienzgirl said...

I love pink. I do. It's my favorite color. HOWEVER, having said that. Pink houses are just wrong. Unless you live in S. Miami where everything is pastel stucko it just looks ridiculous. Just sayin'.

Kaz said...

You live in a pink house? Oh, how wonderful

I'd love to live in a pink house

Tuesday said...

I heart pink (my blog layout is pink!) Pink houses are like barbie houses they all look so cute :D

besswess said...

I love these houses. I would like to live in a pink house at least once in my life.

L.A. Daze said...

Love the pink with the blue doors. The brighter pinks are a bit too much, but the rest are quite nice.

fishy said...

I'm jealous, my house is white. Quite a few different shades of white,that are used to cover up graffiti, now and then. Those pink houses are so pretty.

Addict said...

I wouldn't paint my house pink! But if I owned a vacation house, I'd paint it pink (and then paint the town red, ha ha).

When I was a kid we'd go and visit my cousin Vinny on his farm in upstate New York. The farm was directly across the street from a beautiful old Victorian house that was painted this bright, hideous, Pepto Bismal pink--with NEON PURPLE TRIM. The house had been on the market for a couple of years, apparently, and the owners had all but abandoned it. They refuse to take the advice of the realtors and...repaint it white.

Christiejolu said...

Oh My gosh these were so beautiful....

Trixie said...

I LOVE pink houses! I'd totally paint my house pink with a white door but the stupid idiot code enforcement would pound me on the head and make me repaint it the color "Eh". I named it

which which which is yours? :P They're all so beautiful! lucky :D

Kelsey said...

lol some of those are a non-acceptable pink. PS, LOVE the cat header

Claire Kiefer said...

LOVE them. I always love really brightly colored houses . . . people are scared of doing that, but why on earth should a house have to be a "standard" color? I used to live in New Orleans, where there were all kinds of bright crazy colored homes. How exciting that you live in one of those!

the spectator said...

4 and 5 have my name on them.

Asylum Dolly said...

I definitely think it can work.I love the pastel pinks and the subtle salmony ones..i couldn't live in a barbie bubblegum pink house, but the paler coloured ones are GAWGEOUS! I actually lived in a pretty pink terrace house for a while in my younger days. It was awesome, except the toilet was located OUTSIDE. O.o

Cheryl said...

You live in a pink house?!! Must be a cheerful sight to come home to. I wish I did, much better than the dreary grey Victorian I live in.

Sam said...

Oh the top two are so pretty! Yes, come to think of it pink is a lovely colour for houses! I never really thought about it before seeing your post here!

The Zhush said...

Ya know...I wouldn't think I would like a pink house, but some of these are down right lovely!

Char said...

i would totally live in a pink house

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I think of pink houses and Caribbean breezes. I don't know if I'd do it but it's definitely fun!

pixelhazard said...

I bought a house, it has one pink room...that will be the first thing to go.

I like yellow houses. To each their own i suppose :P

Farah said...

Heather Taylor said...

I love them. Reminds me of the neighborhood in Edward Scissorhands.

asweetcakes said...

I don't think i could ever live in a pink house, much less paint one myself! *shudder*

Nikki said...

OMG!?!?! I LOVE pink HousEs! :O

S and O said...

Kitty Stampede said...

hahhaaha...too hilarious. i am not for bubblegum barbie pink but i love the softer shades. all your choices are pretty damn radical. there were a lot of pink houses/buidings in rome and they rawked.

Jill said...

I love them too...love the one with the banana trees, awning and purple door!

Alisa said...

House 4 with the blue doors and vines is lovely!
