Thank you ;)
I feel like I kind of invaded the subject, because I understand this is a book-area, and I didn't read anything for this subject :)
For pics from the Regenboogbuurt (Rainbow Quarter, that is with the colored houses), try this:

marijke, you're welcome here even if you didn't read the book. You still had something to contribute to this thread. Thanks for those links. The houses aren't what I had envisioned. The architecture is quite modern (or "futuristic" as they put it). I really like the look of the circular ones. And I had envisioned a bright turquoise. But it is a very muted turquoise--a little like a smokey teal (the color of my house).
