Painted Ladies in San Francisco

Today we are moving away from mid-century design to the Victorian era and the second most photographed location in San Francisco (this is the first).

The Painted ladies are a row of Victorian houses painted in pastel shades that enhance their architectural details. I hadn't heard of them prior to seeing them in San Francisco but I realise now why they looked familiar - they were in the opening credits of the TV series 'Full House'.

Did you watch the show? Do the houses look familiar to you?

And did you have a little crush on Jesse too?



I was expecting the houses to be painted in brighter hues but their subtle tones work well with the style of the homes and the landscape.

Most of all though, I had to share the decorative detail of the architecture with you. I am studying a restoration class at the moment and am developing an interest in the preservation of older homes both inside and out. There is something pretty wonderful about the workmanship involved in older homes.

Do you live in an older home? Do you prefer older homes with modern fit-outs or preserving its past (or a bit of both)?

This post is dedicated to my friend Emily Sephton.
