On a day off, just for fun, the owner of this house transformed its plain white facade with a very colorful paint job.

This is utterly delightful—playful and vibrant with a dreamy palette that must make passersby wish they could be invited in. Roxanne of @daintylibrarian frequently creates fun, colorful DIYs that are whimsical and unpredictable. This particular shade of pink is perfection: sophisticated and modern without a hint of saccharine. The hue works well with the door’s faceted glass, leaning into the vintage look instead of fighting it. The coral, peach, and turquoise are the perfect counterparts to the pink, invigorating it without drawing too much focus; the turquoise paint on the plant stand is a nice finishing touch. Vertical stripes were a great way to go, adding color in a clean, streamlined way and creating the illusion of a higher roofline.

If Roxanne can give a house such a fantastic new look in just a day, just because, there are surely more fascinating projects to come soon!

Thank you, Roxanne of @daintylibrarian!
