Primary Colours in Burano, Venice by Robyn Carter

Primary Colours in Burano, Venice by 

The council apparently controls what colour you are allowed to paint your house, but I think they do a great job as the place is bright colourful and cheerful. I’m sure it has a spinoff on residents mood as they were so friendly.

    Nothing quite like vivid colours to brighten anyone’s day Robyn – love it ! When we lived on Gt. Barrier Island the Council would only allow you to paint a house and roof specific colours – white, pale green and brown ! An acquaintance of ours painted their house a rather bright mauve/lilac – it was the crime of the year… ! As far as I know it is still that colour.

  • Councils in New Zealand are boring – they eed to take a leaf out of Burano’s book ;)
