Bold and Brave Colors

Bold and Brave Colors

This fulvous orange is not a color that would work on every home. Here, however, someone is very adept at bringing out the warm excitement of this color without having it become harsh. They are smartly integrating this unusual color by picking it up in the pottery and soothing it by the use of the trim color and touches of blue. Central District, Seattle, WA, USA. Eclectic 1910

Horace Mann School

Seattle is lucky to have some beautiful school buildings. This 1902 Neoclassical structure designed by Charles Saunders is a superb example. Originally called the “Walla Walla” school (which was the name for the neighborhood at that time), it was renamed “Horace Mann” in 1921. It served as an elementary school until 1968 and then as Nova Alternative High School.  Note, Charles Saunders designed five Seattle public schools, this is the last one remaining.
