Seaside Villa

This house was inspired by the roof fabric. The color reminded me of the clay roofs on houses in hot climates.
The roof fabric is kinda ugly, actually, salmon and purple. But any color can look great if the right colors are placed next to it.Here's the finished house. It's 19-1/2" tall by 23" wide.I don't know exactly where this house is located, but I know it's on the coast of the Mediterranean. You can see the bright blue sky, and the flowers growing. I thought this was an appropriate house for the longest day of the year.

Happy Solstice! I actually like that roof fabric, believe it or not - and it looks great in the finished house.

I'm starting to hum Fred Rogers' "Won't You Be My Neighbor" tune to myself. Your neighborhood of wonky houses is looking more fantastic with each one.

CUTE....I love how 'ugly' fabrics change their attitudes once they have been told to 'behave' nicely with other fabrics!

This one is "just right"! I love the sky and the flowers growing, and that roof is perfect for the red tiles!
