What Houzz contributors are saying:

The original 950-square-foot home was built in the 1920s, and it was already a bit cozy. Walter and Blair built their own home toward the back of the property."We spent hours looking at images to find that perfect blue and orange," Dalinda says. "We found the yellow from a colored pencil, the paint person at True Value was wearing the perfect green, and the red is from my kitchen trim." All of the colors were individually mixed until they matched the right imagined color. Every surface stain inside the house is custom mixed as well.
Becky Harris added this to See 5 Homes That Explode With Color
A couple's permanent residence on Vashon Island, in Washington state. Nicknamed "The Salsa House," this home has one of the most exuberant exteriors I've ever seen.

ouzz at a Glance Who lives here: Walter Lewis and Blair Dean Location: Vashon Island, Washington Size: 1,000 square feet; 1 bedroom, 1 bath, loft space That's interesting: John Demyanovich is Delene's brother-in-law, so the building process was a true family affair.
