I was out for a walk the other day, when this home caught my eye. Amidst a sea of traditional brick and stone homes this colorful home immediately brought a smile to my face. I love the tile mosaics and stained glass windows that decorate its exterior. You also don’t see a ton of homes in Chicago with blue accents.
My first thought was that this colorful house on an otherwise conservative block creates a great metaphor for life. We all should strive to be the colorful house, even if we are located on an ordinary block. Surround yourself with whatever you think is beautiful, may it be an expression through your clothing, your jewelry or your home. Embrace your own individual style. Then stand proudly in your beauty.
Different is beautiful, unique is beautiful. This particular house was on a block full of lovely homes, but I only stopped to take a picture of this one and there is a reason for that. Embrace your own unique inimitable style.
