Mellow Yellow Monday - San Francisco Victorian - December 20, 2010


I came across this beautiful Victorian when driving near Dolores Park in San Francisco. 
I just love the color schemes and gingerbread that graces these "painted ladies."

  7. The Victoria-like houses.
    I watched them from the lawn Park.
    A wonderful memory...

    The view was peaceful.
    The form is a symbol of paradise San Francisco.

    I imagine it must be pretty expensive to heat these Victorians.

    It isn't hard to find these since they are all over San Francisco. I love driving around, you turn down a street you haven't been on before and discover all sorts of new houses you haven't seen.

    The amazing variety of paint colors is something to see on these Victorians!

    You're right...the neighbors can't compare to this cute Victorian!

    I would need an elevator to live in some of these houses that are three stories and on the steepest of hills!

    SF definitely has its charm and a European feel to it...but Hawaii is equally beautiful - glad we're neighbors!!

    I think it's time you came back to San Francisco for a visit!

    I know there are hundreds of Victorians that I haven't even discovered yet.

    The first year I lived here, I bought a watercolor of a little yellow Victorian. My dream always was to buy one....but it only remained a dream.

    There is a multimillion dollar business in painting these Victorians. This yellow one is quite sedate, actually.

    Are there Victorians in Mumbai? Since the English were in India for a long time, it wouldn't surprise me.
