In an era where so many homes are decked out in shades of gray, sometimes a bright color palette can brighten your day. Take this six-bedroom, four-bath home in Hood River, Oregon. Known locally as the rainbow house, the home is nestled between Mt. Hood and the Columbia river, offering views of the scenic valley and river.
The house was constructed in 1917 and sits on a half-acre lot walking distance to Hood River’s cute downtown area. But the property’s most striking quality is the array of different colors; a cobalt blue roof pays homage to the nearby waterway, shutters and window trims are painted in yellows, oranges, and pinks, and color blocked planters add to the whimsy.
Inside the 5,340-square-foot home, the kaleidoscope continues. The kitchen balances bright blue floors with white cabinets, plenty of windows, and a rainbow-colored sculptural light. The dining room has its own funky light—a neon tube version—and the living room boasts a chandelier with quirky Alice and Wonderland style.
Other perks in the house include a glass-enclosed room, extensive library, and four-car garage with rooftop patio. Love what you see? 603 Sherman Avenue is on the market now for $1,450,000.
