Today is the final round of my walking home tours in Naperville, Illinois. I think you’ll enjoy these pretty yellow and green homes in a neighborhood of custom residential housing on the northwest side of town.
Some of the houses on today’s tour are more creamy than they are yellow, like the one below. I could’ve included them on the Naperville neutral homes tour but I tried to divide the amount of houses equally in each post.
It’s a little hard to tell, but this newer Victorian home is a pale shade of green. I love the bay windows and the little arched window at the peak of the roof.
Here’s another “not quite yellow” house. Note how the eaves have a dark strip of brown to accentuate them further. The porch posts also have contrasting paint colors to make the details easier to see.
This house is more my style. Small (i.e. less house to clean), quaint, and cute. Trim work is highlighted with contrasting paint and although this light green home is small, it still enjoys a full porch.
A Spanish style home has hints of gold and yellow in the stonework. Arched windows are trimmed in red paint. Doors on the third floor open up to a balcony overlooking the street.
Here’s a side view where you can view the open cupola on the roof and more balconies. I wish more neighborhoods incorporated such a wide range of architectural styles.
Another pale green house enjoys a full porch and an impressive wooden front door with skylights and a transom window.
Several homes in the neighborhood have stone pillars framing the sidewalk to the house. I like how a few of the evergreens are trimmed to mimic the arch of the front door.
The dark green an red trim really make details pop on this custom Naperville house on a quiet residential street.
We’ll finish today’s snowy walking tour with a large, pale yellow home with dental molding and other Victorian accents. I think this one might be my favorite on today’s tour.
Do you have a favorite from one of today’s yellow and green homes?
