Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is an impossibly charming city, packed with colonial and Victorian homes. Many downtown buildings are brick, with gleaming hunter green or black wooden shutters and doors. Others are fronted with wood clapboards. Painted a few shades darker are tastefully monochromatic front doors in appropriately Puritan shades ranging from cream through the grays and into an occasional green. Subtle pastels coexist among genteel structures.
And then there’s this: Miss Personality. A blaze of neon rainbow in a muted New England waterfront.
Sometimes, you just have to express yourself.
