photo hunt: pink

Although I normally only like pink as found in the garden (see bottom thumbnails *), I fell in love with this pink home in Italy. Please note that the details (window frames, birds) are painted on the building, Trompe l'oeil style, French for "trick of the eye"!

  39. Oh yes, there are a lot of pink houses in Italy, I had some difficulties to find pink things ! And then I remembered we had already pink as theme and just posted the old once, lol !

    Wir hatten auch Bahnstreik gestern ! Alle streiken plötzlich, in Deutschland auch. Ich weiss dass die Amerikaner rosa für Brustkrebs gewählt haben, ist ja auch gut, aber jetzt im Oktober an rosa zu denken (oder in) fällt mir schwer !

    ReplyDelete
  64. That is so awesome, all the house here are a horrible yellow/pebble colour. They arent as vibrant and sexy as this!

    ReplyDelete
  65. How did I miss commenting on this, as it seems I did? Gorgeous building, I do love the style, but I especially love the bougainvillea (it is, isn't it?) - one of my favourites, I adore it, but it didn't fit with saying I didn't like garish colours. Obviously I do when they are in the right place:)
