Whimsical colors for historic architecture

I took a look down memory lane at some of my favorite projects for Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA recently. I have had the great privilege over the years of taking some rather ordinary looking (but authentic historic) houses and transforming them with color. Whitman College has purchased houses on and adjacent to campus that are used as “interest” houses that students may live in who share a passion for that particular interest. I have so much enjoyed working with the Director of Residence Life and Housing who appreciates color and has always been open to my ideas. Since these are not private residences the use of color can stretch the limits a bit and still be appropriate; I’m not so bold with private residences unless that’s what the client wants…well maybe! Which one do you like?
