Pink Houses in Los Angeles

 

It appears pink houses are hot.

 

In Los Angeles.

 

Yes, I know what you may be thinking.

 

But even here, pink houses are not that common.

 

After I read an initial report I had to go check it out too.  

 

I mean I had to, right?

 

I wasn’t alone.  People are coming to visit.

Curbed had a report on it.  So did Time.  Television and radio news too.

 

Pink Houses in Los Angeles

 

 

You see prior to demolition of three homes to build an apartment complex, an artist painted each home the same bright pink color as a temporary art installation.  

 

Eye-catching or eye-sore --- what do you think?

 

As for me --- I'm reminiscing about John Mellencamp and 1983.

 

 

 

 

And if you happen to be thinking of Los Angeles real estate...you might even say I would be tickled pink if you wanted to discuss what is important to you. Let's talk...I can be reached at 818.516.4393 call - text.

Oh my, that is definitely not my style and even if the home were perfect inside, I think I might miss it because the exterior would turn me off, haha.

Good morning Michael, many years ago, I sold a pink house, EVERYTHING was pink, I mean everything. I remember making a comment about the color, learned my lesson that day not to ever do that again after my buyer client expressed how much she loved the home, especially the color pink. Not my taste but I know many like the pink color.

The Sacramento Bee did a feature story on the painting of the pink houses in Los Angeles, and showed models lying in the driveways. They are tearing it down and putting up a high-rise apartment building, right?

Ya gotta love Pepto Bismol Pink!

I would need Pepto to look at that bright color too long, Love pink flowers but not clothes or houses. Different strokes for different folks.

Yes, Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents the three pink houses are being demolished to make way for a 45 unit apartment building.  In the meantime, it is still attracting a lot of attention and yes I did some some photo shoots while I was there.

Michael,

Pink like every other color deserves it's 15 minutes in the spot light . . .  but it won't last much longer than that.

While I love the color pink, I'm not sure I'd want my house to look like I painted it with Pepto Bismol.

I love that Little Pink Houses song.  These homes remind me of the insulation commercials with the Pink Panther.

Hi Michael - I remember that song! And that was a cool idea for an art thing, but I've even seen a few for real pink homes that were able to pull it off.

Hi Michael, 

A very well done post about pink eyesores!  Our local paint store only stocks 4 colors LOL so you can figure out where I am coming from. The only colors allowed in the city of Sedona blend with the scenery...period!!!

Hi Michael, They even painted the barrel tiled roofs pink! Maybe something to write about for Curbed because it's different. Now I know why associations regulate the colors you can paint your home so it does not bring down the value of the neighborhood. Guess in LA, anything goes.

Pretty in pink doesn't translate well for houses. The dull pinkish color Alexandra refers to in her comment can be rather pleasing, but generally it's a thumbs down from the folks in Washington state. ;)

I'm not sure I've ever seen a pink house around here....they are prettiest in tropical locations I think.

That's pretty cool, Michael, although I can't say I would personally want to live there. My parents actually owned a pink house (lighter in color, then painted yellow) that I lived in as a kid.

There is a bright pink house in Cardiff (looks like Pepto Bismol) that you can see from the coast road, and also a purple one nearby. Both are eye-catching!!

The first home I remember was a pink stucco home in Miami Florida. We has a red tile roof. Fond memories.
