Pastel Home Exteriors

With Easter just a few weeks a way, I have had pastel colors on my mind. Pastel colors are  pretty and cheerful, and, in my humble opinion, they are underused for home exteriors.

Here are some images of homes that aren’t afraid of showing their Easter colors!

Aren’t these just the happiest looking homes? Which color would you choose? I will take a pink one, thank you very much!

    1. Yes, we definitely need more color in Chicago–it would cheer us up during the long winters! We have an adorable historic pink house on our street but I heard a developer purchased the property and wants to tear it down and replace it with condos–this makes me so sad.

  1. I LOVE pastel houses. In fact, I love all houses painted fun colours. . . Problem is, I read the history behind “suffolk Pink” which is where they mixed other substances into the limewash (ahem, Pig blood) and I’ve never been quite able to stomach pink houses since!!! The mint colour of the Cuban houses are gorgeous.

  2. Those homes look beautiful in those light colors. We have an all brick home and I’m dying to paint it white, not sure I have the guts to do anything except white, may go crazy and pick some other color besides black for the shutters 🙂
