Washington, D.C. has a lot of beautiful brick Victorian homes with bay windows, such as these in Capitol Hill. Although the traditional colors for them are red brick, many homeowners like to paint their houses (which drives the historic preservation folks crazy). Many of the houses still have their original cast-iron front stairs (like the house on the right) and wooden doors.

The house in the center belongs to the mother of my husband's best friend. She has recently painted it since this photo so now it is a pale golden-yellow with cream trim. I'll post more for everyone as I see them because with all of the revitalization going on, many of them have been restored now. I think they're gorgeous...
