Charleston, South Carolina
Lining East Bay Street, this row of colorful historic houses is one of
the most-photographed areas in the city. In the early 1900s, Charleston
preservationist Dorothy Porcher Legge purchased and renovated
a section of the then-dilapidated homes, painting them pink based on a
Colonial Caribbean color scheme. Other homeowners followed suit,
resulting in the range of pastel colors seen today.
