Strolling in Halifax

Yesterday was a beautiful winter day in Halifax, but today is back to fog and rain. I took advantage of the nice weather by taking a walk and admiring the beautiful housing and architecture which is characteristic of the Maritimes. Painted in bright colours, not a brick in sight, and cape cod styles with white pickets and columns, these houses are sure to remind you of the sea.
My favourite house was this black number with a bright pink door. Notice that neat little crescent window on the roof!:
Imagine being able to say "It's the one with the pink door" to visiting guests. This house totally my style! In fact, it matched the outfit I wore for my walk perfectly!:
 Here are some other houses I saw and liked, and a few ideas of how you can incorporate exterior ideas in your interior design plans!
What do you think of the housing style out East? Could you paint your house bright blue? What about a hot pink front door? I think I could settle in quite nicely here. SO charming.

I love these houses! I lived for a few years in a small town full of colorfully brightly painted old houses, and I thought it was so charming and sweet.

I love the black and pink house! Too funny that your outfit matches :) You are right...it would be fun to say to guests, "I'm the house with the pink door!"

Growing up, there was a house in our neighborhood that was very, very dark navy (shingle style) with white trim, and a bright red door. It's always been one of my favorite houses!

Great finds. You have such wonderful taste!

I would never have the courage to do a black house with a pink door but it works on this one! Love this roundup of colorful houses, and will pin several to my Colorful Doors board!
