Real Life Yellow

We don’t often get to see bright, vibrant yellows out in the real world. It isn’t exactly a common color choice for buildings or fences. Just the occasional sports car.

The Red Door

Nothing beats red for making a bold statement. It’s no wonder that a house with a red door is an image that stands out for many writers and artists. Who could forget such a stunning sight?

The perfect shade of red on this building is even more memorable because of the contrast of white trim and green vines. The combination looks rustic and luxe all at once.
