Thursday doors…colorful Philadelphia

Not far from where our daughter lives in Philadelphia, the houses are lovely; not modern, but full of beautiful history. And, in these cases, color and detail. Walk with me awhile.  The rain has held off and it’s a lovely spring day.

The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.
― John Ruskin, The Stones of Venice

Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.

Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.

  4. I love the colourful doors!

  5. Very cheerful, and wonderful quotes to go with them. I especially like the Gibran one.

    These are beautiful doors, Janet. I love how people sharing the same building, make their portion unique. Then, the combined effort is so interesting. I really like the blue accents on the house at the end.

    Gorgeous! I can’t help but smile knowing that someone put an awful lot of love into these. Great finds Janet 🙂

    • Doing all that different paint work is time-consuming as is just building a house with all those details. But the results are beautiful and cheerful. Glad you liked them, Norm.

  8. These colours are so very cheerful, Janet. No-one could help but smile to see them. 🙂

  10. It always brings a smile to see homes with historic architecture accented with bright colors. 🙂

    I love the look of those houses. I wish I had been a little bolder with the color of ours.

  12. The green in the first photo is a stunning choice, but it works well on the house.

    You probably forgive me, because painters are very opinionated about their choice of colors – blue is awesome, and even blue and green, but green and yellow …. it would be the first thing tp paint over if it would be my house:):) But great finds and neighborhood!

    Bold but definitely beautiful!

    There is so much of the USA that we don’t see in the movies. The colours look great on those old style buildings. Great pictures.

  19. What great quotes – love the first one! (and the beautiful building treasures you found )

  20. Love the quotes … and of course the colors!

  21. Prior... says:
