229-Painted Ladies – New Orleans

It wouldn’t be New Orleans without the freedom of artistic expression when it comes to painting your house. I used to live in Irvine, CA where as a homeowner you had four choices of paint color for your house – dark beige, beige, medium beige, and light beige. If you went crazy and added a stripe or a lightening bolt to your garage door, they sued you to conform to the lowest common denominator of bad taste. Here are a few photos of some of the wildest color choices in New Orleans that people and their pigments can make.
