Red Houses

I have no idea where I got these pictures of red houses from. Some of them are from historical sites, and who knows where else the others came from. But I do love them all!

The house above and the house below
have EVERYTHING painted red -
house trim and shutters.
It creates a seamless look with texture.

The house below has white trim.
I think we're going to go with ivory.

This is a modern garrison house
similar in style to mine in darker red.

And finally, here's the subject house again.
I love before and afters.
But the after doesn't come till late June.

AFTER PHOTOS are here and here.

So have you painted it red yet??? I'd love to see it as I am on the verge of having our hoouse painted red.

Hi, MaryCharlotte - you can see a post about my house "after" at the following link. It was fun to go from drab to red, for sure! I haven't regretted it once.

And here's one of the house in winter! Love the red against the snow!
