Pretty In Pink

Hugo Santos took his inspiration for the Boavistas House from the beautiful old buildings in Oporto, Portugal.  It immediately caught my eye because of its bold pink and grey facade, which is one of my favourite colour combinations.

I must admit that there being two studs’ worth of pink bricks on the left but just one of pink bricks on the right bugs me (I need symmetry!); however, the features that I noticed first were the brick-built door, the little basement arches, the window combinations and the shape of the roof.

This is one of those buildings that I think would look great as a row of townhouses.
