Rumor has it that pink is a growing home trend in exterior paint color, and admittedly, we’re reeling. Could it be? Are we veering away from the dark charcoals of yesteryear and moving into a more whimsical world where we embrace vibrant color? It seems that charming pink homes are spreading like wildfire from the East Coast to San Fransisco Bay. They’re making their mark here in the South, too — think the iconic Calhoun-Thornwell Estate in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, or the historic “Pink House” on Chalmers Street in Charleston, which happens to be one of the oldest buildings in the area. Cue a rather surprising home trend that’s steadily picking up speed, leaving some scratching their heads while others are … well, tickled pink. Check out these fun homes that will have you seeing the world through rose-colored glasses!

In 2017 Architectural Digest declared that “The Next Big Exterior Paint Color Just Might Be Pink.” And, we’re definitely see more of this fun trend four years later.

Happy pink house hunting!
