Mellow Yellow Monday, #106, San Francisco Painted Lady, January 31, 2011

During a recent drive around Pacific Heights, I chanced across this lovely yellow
Victorian.  I am so glad I had my camera with me.  It was a perfect shot for Mellow
Yellow Monday.

    San Francisco is full of this type of house, painted in all sorts of colors.

    You would not believe the variety of colors of the San Francisco Victorians! There is quite a business of house painters specializing in this. Some are really incredible, with bright colors and contrasting trim. There's a wonderful book out, called, "Painted Ladies" that shows a lot of them.

    I am not sure if that is a single family house or a couple of's pretty big for one family - but it's in a very wealthy part of San Francisco.

    We have so many beautiful Victorians in San Francisco. Some really have fancy
    "gingerbread" on them.

    I'd love to look inside, too. There are a couple of Victorians that are open to the public and I've several friends who are wealthy enough to own them.

    There are actually quite a few yellow houses around here, Victorian and others.

    The house definitely stands out! It wouldn't be hard to find.

    Yellow does seem a nice color choice for this house.

    I've been in the San Francisco area 34 years now. I always dreamed of owning a yellow Victoria with white shutters. In fact, I bought a water color of just such a house at Ghirardelli Square shortly after I moved here, in hopes I might find a house I could afford that matched such luck!

    The house, with its rounded shape, is quite unusual, I think. I haven't seen many like it.

    Isn't it a pretty house? It would be fun to look inside. I'd like to know how many bedrooms it has.
