House of Blue Shutters

More blue shutters. Thought I would do one more house of blue shutters before I moved on. This is another French Quarter house with the bright blues. Actually, I am surprised, but the colors work. But then again, I've got the New Orleans slant on color schemes -- I think green, gold and purple go together.

Fabulous! I believe this is almost the blue used in St. Tropez. Here the shutters are more likely to be a pale turquoise.

Spectacular house!

This is a delightful image, and the hues of both colours make the building very inviting. Very nice!!

I agree with Jilly. This picture also reminded me of the South of France. Maybe Provence.

The colors in the French Quarter are outstanding. Sometime I will have to dig into my archives and post a few from our last visit.
Nice shot Steve.

Steve,
This photo brings to mind a lot of fond memories of living in New Orleans (was stationed there in the US Coast Guard in the late 80s). Missing the chickory coffee and beignets, too. :-)

Those colors really do work. Think of the courage it took for the painter to try that out, and the joy when it looked so beautiful.

Blue is a fabulous colour. It works everywhere, even in the shutters!
Enjoy your weekend!
