City pretty… what colour is yours?

I found these photographs of San Francisco on the beautiful Cachemire et Soie blog thanks to Victoria. The stunning pastel colour palettes created by the architecture reminded me a little bit of The Paris Colour Project and started me wondering what the colour palette of the cities I know would be… or whether there is even one at all?

Colours and architecture of San Francisco{all Anne for Cachemire et Soie}

I’ve never been to San Francisco but if you have I’d be interested to know if the whole city is painted like this or if it’s just little a little pocket. When I think of the colours of London my mind’s eye sees something like those Photoshopped black and white photos with just a spot of red highlighted. Grey and red… that’s the palette of London for me. Nowhere near as pretty.

What would be the colour palette of the place you live?

    I’ve been to San Fran and I remembering it being wonderfully colourful, although the first two images must be in a little pocket as I don’t remember seeing any houses/ streets quite as cool and colourful as that. It’s a fantastic city with friendly people and loads to see and do. It’s a definite must go! :)

    I love those pics of San Francisco- perfect! It is next on my places to visit. I don’t live in a city, I live in Shropshire, so I reckon the colour palette here would have to be green. LOTS and lots of fields!

    London to me is grey. But in a good way- lots of buildings and concrete and civilisation!
