Pretty in Pink

Would you live in a pink house? Our circa 1875 Victorian-style farmhouse was pink when we first moved in 15 years ago. And although I didn’t mind since pink is my favorite color, we’ve since painted it a buttery yellow. I’m editing some photos of its exterior and hope to post them soon. For now, I’m giving a nod to our home’s history by celebrating pink houses.

What a darling home! From the pink clapboard to the white accents, this home has “quaint” written all over it.
I’m lovin’ the details like the horse-tying post, picket fence and graceful arbor.

Ah! The quintessential bungalow. Our first home was a Sears Catalog bungalow from 1925
and it’s always been one of my favorites. I’ve always adored this type of architecture.

Some houses were meant to wear a certain color, and pink is this home’s match made in heaven.
This one is my favorite. I love the arched front door and sidelights. Mm, mm, mmm!
Sweet and simple. Even a small cottage can dream of being a painted lady.

Did I already say I had a favorite? I may have to change my mind about that because this
bucolic setting is calling my name!

All dressed up for the holidays! Our house has a metal roof just like this one which is just one of its many charms
(I also found out it’s fun to slide down metal roofs!).
Could a pink house be any cuter? Lovin’ the row of windows perched above the fence that’s
dotted with stately sunflowers. Wish I could take a walk around this neighborhood.
It’s Friday night and I should be wining and dining with hubby at a place like this … The Olde Pink House.

Last but certainly not least, this Charleston home reminds me of many
summer vacations spent in South Carolina … namely Hilton Head Island.
Linking this week to …

  2. Well, I can hardly believe it is Thanksgiving already. Seems like we just planted our flowers…I am so very thankful for many ways God has blessed me…I give HIM all the Glory!I ask for many blessings to come your way through this holiday season!

  3. I love this post. There is a pink bungalow on my street that I adore so much… it reminds me of picture #2 you have posted here. I actually have had lunch at the Olde Pink House and it was delicious! Happy Pink Saturday!

  4. Oh my goodness Jennifer I don’t know which one I like best!!! I could definitely live in a pink house.
    I love the one from the Sears catalog.
    Happy Pink Saturday..xo Tami

  5. Jennifer some of these are gorgeous! Although I love pink, I prefer it in smaller amounts. I expect your yellow house is much prettier now than it’s former pink self. I adore Hilton Head Island and haven’t been back since my hubby passed away three years ago.

  6. Love all those pink houses and church. The Pink House in Savannah is a great restaurant I love to dine there and of course, love that it is pink. The house in Charleston is one I walk by often. I love those two historic cities and many houses are pink especially in Charleston.Wish I could live in a pink house.

  7. WOW! Just when I thought I had picked my favorite, nope. Too many darn cute pink houses. I could live in a pink house. Not so sure how the hubby would feel. I bet your house is darling yellow. We visited S. Carolina 3 years ago. I brought home a painting of my favorite house I had seen there. It was yellow with red accents. TOO CUTE! It hangs in our master bedroom.

  8. LOVE…LOVE…LOVE all these pink houses. I would in a minute live in a pink house, especially a Victorian! When done right (as all of the above are) pink is marvelous. I live in an area with tons of Victorians and there was this cute house and just the other day they painted the trim pink- bubble gum pink – not the right pink…I almost crashed the car when I saw it! Thanks for linking up…I am a new follower here!

  9. I also love the third house. It looks a lot like the doll house of my daughter. Hehe. The color of the roof and siding make a beautiful contrast. The pink siding made the dark roof stand out even more. And the white trims create a good lining between the two main colors. It’s perfect, and I think my wife would love this since she loves pink!
