Happy PINK Saturday everyone!
The Lowcountry is one of the few places where not only is it acceptable to paint your house PINK, it is also quite common. Last week I had to pay a visit to a client and since I had my camera with me, I thought I would snap some pictures of a few of the PINK houses in her neighborhood. This neighborhood is what is known as a Neo-Traditional neighborhood, a new neighborhood designed and implemented to look like a very old neighborhood. Keep in mind as you look at these houses, that each is a new house, less than ten years old. You can click on any of the pictures to bring up a larger image.
If you notice the porch ceiling on this house, you will notice it is painted a pale shade of blue. This is a very old tradition in the South and is said to keep away "Haints" or evil spirits.
This next "cottage" is painted more of a salmon shade of pink.
I love this next house, It looks like it has been there forever!
I really want to know what is behind that wall. I crossed the street to get a closer look when the homeowner returned home from walking his dog. OOPS! busted! I just nonchalantly strolled away.
This next house is exquisite.
It is so meticulously maintained!
That's it for this week. Please stop by How Sweet The Sound and say HI to Miss Beverly, our host for Pink Saturday.
