Why are the Houses in Bermuda Pastel?

If you look at the houses on the island of Bermuda, they are all vibrant, pastel colors.


Pinks, greens, yellows, and peach are the traditional colors of Bermuda.  Many also have the traditional white roofs slanted like an upside down V.


So why pastel? It all started in the beginning when settlers came in the 17th century. They used what they could off the land to build the houses so their materials naturally were Bermuda stone, lime and palmetto. That’s how Bermuda became so colorful.


There is no restrictions on what color you can paint your house now. The government certainly does not dictate which you can or cannot use.


If you move to Bermuda, feel free to chose any color you want for your home!
