Bright, vibrant, intriguing, and unique, chromatic homes are speckled across the world's landscape. These historic houses and buildings are saturated with colors - often highlighting decorative woodwork and architecture-to enhance, revive, and regenerate various neighborhoods and communities. John I. "Hans" Gilderbloom explores and celebrates the appeal of these captivating houses in Chromatic Homes: The Joy of Color in Historic Places.

He will be speaking at the Conrad-Caldwell House in Old Louisville's St. James Court. Gilderbloom argues that Louisville ranks fourth in the number of Chromatic homes behind San Francisco, Miami, and New Orleans. Gilderbloom will present a short 25 minute Power Point with from the 182 pictures in the book arguing that painting a home in bright colors provides a homeowners and a neighborhood with new "confidence" that regenerate a neighborhood that is vibrant, joyful, sustainable, and loveable. Gilderbloom takes a page from the new urbanist Bible of Andres Duany, Jeff Speck, and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk.
