The Unexpected Color Palettes of New Orleans' Homes

This photographer's shots just might inspire you to head to the paint aisle.

Rows of technicolor homes might not suit every city (we'd be certainly be surprised if every brownstone in Brooklyn was suddenly a "purplestone" or a "pinkstone" — though they do exist). But New Orleans is another story. Historically, the city has always embraced painting its Victorians and shotgun-style homes in a rainbow of shades.

Photographer Laura Steffan has made it her unofficial job to document the city's lovely array of houses, and now her Instagram feed is loaded with happy hues.

Even if you're not quite ready to take a paint brush to your home's exterior any time soon, you still might want to double-tap the palettes you love. Coral and violet paint might stick out like a sore thumb in your current neighborhood, but in your bedroom? Yes, please.

Take a look:

Currently putting my photo book together. I'm excited to create it using @artifactuprising and I'm impressed with their beautiful print quality. It will be a square 5.5x5.5" softcover book great for your coffee table. For the past 9 months I have been photographing the charm of New Orleans homes and architecture and the book will showcase about 60-70 of those photos. All of the images have been shot exclusively on the iPhone and edited with @vsco. I will have a link to it on my website when it's ready to go!

Love pops of yellow found on #homesofnola. I made the hashtag #nolayellow to organize my photos of yellow found in the city. #WHPmydailyroute
