I didn’t know the backstory behind the house in downtown Plymouth, Michigan, but the pink colored house sure caught my attention as I traveled into the downtown area.
With the handwritten bright pink “Picasso Was Here!“ sign on the front lawn, you can’t miss the house on Ann Arbor Trail, a couple blocks east of Kellogg Park.
Based on my years living in and around the Plymouth area, I can tell you downtown Plymouth is pretty conservative with house colors.
Which had me wondering, who paints a house bright pink?
And then adds black polka dots on the pink paint?
Well, from what I learned in a January 2020 Hometown Life story, the homeowner is waiting for approval from the city of Plymouth for a land use change.
Which would allow the homeowner to demolish the current building and build out a new two-story building in its place
And for some reason, while the process takes time, the homeowner chose to paint half the house a bright pink color.
If you’re in the Plymouth area, have you stopped by to see the Picasso Was Here! house?
