I’m finally getting time to look at all of the pictures we took in Curacao….all 485 of them! We are very lucky to have the opportunity to spend a week on the beautiful island of Curacao. There is so many beautiful sights to share, so I think I will divide it up into a few posts. First, I’m sharing some of the colorful homes, beautiful architecture, and beach décor.
The town of Willemstad is filled with streets of colorful buildings. Below is the center of Rif Ford, with a fountain in the center square and lots of shopping.
This was one of the hotels and casinos. We didn’t go in, we just enjoyed the beauty from outside.
Bob really liked the color of this bank.
We took many pictures of all the buildings in a row, but this one shows the variety of colors. I asked Bob what color he would choose if this was the style of home we had, and his choice was salmon and yellow. I would choose coral and yellow….so I think we are close enough to pick colors we would both like to live with for our home. Of course, we’d have to be living somewhere where that is the style. A coral house would stick out a bit too much in Lancaster!
As we walked the streets, it wasn’t just the buildings that were colorful. We also found this beautiful alley. It was 3-dimensional, which made it even more unique.
The churches and cemeteries were works of art too.
I enjoyed the décor around the hotel too. It was amazing to see a lot of the trends I see on a regular basis on other blogs, like the driftwood mirror.
The coral wall décor was hanging in the open stairwell.
The most eye-catching was the enormous coral chandelier hanging in the lounge.
I’ll share more of Curacao soon, with some of nature’s beauty in the beaches and wildlife. What color house would you choose? What do you think of the beach décor?
