Gray, white, blue-gray, off-white, and even beige remain popular colors for home builders and remodelers everywhere because, while they may not excite anyone, they won’t turn anyone who looks at a potential home off either.

Which is why we at least stop and take notice when a more colorful home comes along. Such homes may prove harder to sell because of the color choices, but the colors are an expression of an owner’s personality — and possibly a buyer’s too.

The owner of this modest yet spacious row home in Passyunk Square clearly has a sunny disposition, given the bright and bold colors one finds throughout this home. Accent colors like the white on the brick chimney serve to accentuate the brightness.

Even the kitchen comes alive with a multicolored mosaic tile backsplash.

Rear patio

And at the back of the main floor you’ll find an equally colorful large patio where green, red, brown and orange combine to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Bathroom

Master bedroom

The kitchen and bathrooms have all been nicely updated, and the master bedroom has lots of space.

Buy this home now and you’ll be all set for grilling season once you move your grill in. For added convenience, you can get great cuts of meat and loads of fresh vegetables at the Italian Market two blocks to your west. That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to local color around you, by the way.
