Red Bungalow, Los Angeles, Southern California

The Box House is primarily made of brick, but there are a few places where we can get creative with paint. The front entryway is one; we're also going to strip the white paint off the masonry and maybe use a concrete stain so it's not so, well, bright. I've begun to gather images of 1900s-1920s style houses to get a feel for color schemes. I doubt we'll paint this summer, with so many other projects in the works, so there's plenty of time to mull things over. I'll post these images periodically, because they also give an excellent idea on what gardens looked like then.

This one is from an old postcard of a Southern California Bungalow, Los Angeles.
