After all, who wants a boring green house when it could look like this!grin

<goes off to practise shocked at silly mistake face for when husband gets home>

Oh my daughter has just squealed on seeing that house.

It's pink, ergo it's perfect!

Practise that face!!!

thats AWESOME!!!! I would love to paint my house a gaudy colour (perhaps not pink though) im sure there are planning laws against it lol!

mummytotwoboys Tue 16-Aug-11 14:45:22

just noticed the letters in the hedge too - brilliant

It look like one of those Mr Kipling French Fancy cakes - in a good way

There's a pic of my house on my profile. You can see it's a nasty mustard and brown (last painted in the 70s). It will look soooo pretty pink. Husband just has no vision grin

this house has been allowed to stay this colour but had to remove the ads, so no rules against pink houses! grin

Kladdkaka Tue 16-Aug-11 14:50:31

Tina, that one's gorgeous too. Without the ads though.

I think the kind of houses are the only kinds that look good in bright colours, what kind do you have? Try googling "painted lady houses"

you just have to do it... and keep practicing the face

itisnearlysummer Tue 16-Aug-11 14:52:02

I think a pink house might be the way to go!

Kladdkaka Tue 16-Aug-11 14:53:34

Lola, my house is a wooden one too, although quite a bit smaller and plainer. There is a small pic of it on my profile.

LolaRennt Tue 16-Aug-11 14:53:34

i love these

LolaRennt Tue 16-Aug-11 14:54:52

Oh that will be so cute, with lovely white trim

Kladdkaka Tue 16-Aug-11 14:55:06

Lola, he's gonna love you when he finds out he's got to build a turret for me too. grin

LolaRennt Tue 16-Aug-11 14:55:17

you need to throw in a stained glass window somewhere too

LolaRennt Tue 16-Aug-11 14:56:14

It has to be done kladdka one mustn't do things by halves! grin

Kladdkaka Tue 16-Aug-11 15:02:38

I have a cunning plan. I'm going to tell him I want this one, and then negotiate down from there.

DizzyKipper Tue 16-Aug-11 15:06:55

I would actually be pretty annoyed if my OH did this, not that there's much danger of him doing so, I would really dislike having a pink house. Any colour should be discussed and agreed on together, therefore YABU. But I guess I'm the fuddy duddy in this thread lol

DorisIsAPinkDragon Tue 16-Aug-11 15:07:43

OMG that last one HAS to be styled by Disney (Good starting point for negotitions tho'!)

Kladdkaka Tue 16-Aug-11 15:15:29

Dizzy, if I thought my husband would be annoyed I wouldn't do it. I know him well enough to know that he'll roll his eyes, mutter under his breath about 'never getting any bloomin respect in this house', all the while being secretly amused and also relieved that I haven't accidentally bought another dog/cat/rabbit/tortoise/other homeless critter.

Pink is a very traditional colour for older houses in East Anglia.


itisnearlysummer Tue 16-Aug-11 15:23:33

I think my DH would love that Disney-esque house!

ViolaTricolor Tue 16-Aug-11 15:54:38

Yes quite, piprabbit, much of Suffolk looks like a candyfloss factory. The houses match the beautiful pigs grin.
