I wish I had the balls to paint the exterior of my house orange, pink or electric green...Apart from an imminent breakdown of all communication channels with my partner, I dont think it would go very well with my condo mates either.  It wouldnt surprise me if all the home owners in the entire street get together and sue me for conspiring to deflate the already troubled property values.

Perhaps all they need is  a dose of exposure to a certain breed of newly painted single family houses in rural Tamil Nadu. The worlds largest democracy may not necessarily lead the way in participatory governance, but it certainly showcases the power of 'free will' when it comes to the choice of exterior paint selection.
