Color-Joyful Houses in Grand Rapids


Brian and I went to Grand Rapids for Father’s Day. On our way home, we went for a walk in the East Town Neighborhood. I found some beautifully painted homes on our walk.

We lucked out, because the family living in the orange house with a purple door, was outside and we chatted a while. They just finished this paint job. Isn’t it a beauty?

I figured that with a purple door, I needed to photograph it for my category “Purple Houses” here on this blog. They were all for it.


We also found this wonderful electric-green house. It appears to be headquarters for a neighborhood organization of some sort.


The homes in this area are just gorgeous. The architecture is uniformly detailed and delightful. We had a great walk.
