    Default The most colorful house on L.A.'s Venice canals

    Nely Galán's house on one of Los Angeles' Venice canals demands to be stared at -– and discussed. It's a fitting house for Galán, former president of entertainment for Telemundo and executive producer of the Fox reality show "The Swan," which gave women extreme makeovers. She gave her house -- actually a three-house compound -- her own makeover involving eight coats of paint to achieve its radiance.

    All color on the outside, and white on the inside. That's fucked up.

    Hate it and would be furious if I were a neighbor and she was bringing down the value of my property.

    ok this was just recently done b/c I used to walk these canals all the time (having lived about a mile or so away) and never saw this before

    that said, people who live here and on the boardwalk of venice and the surrounding cities of santa monica to the north and marina del rey to the south are fucking crazy; there's absolutely ZERO privacy, tourists during the day and bums, druggies and criminals at night - LA kinda sux actually

    the canals stink too supposedly in the summer when it gets all warm and algae-ridden, although I never see actual homeowners here enjoying their little yards or the view

    "I went outside with my neighbor, and we thought it was being painted like that for a movie," said Ruth Light, who has lived two doors away for 30 years. "Because who would paint their house like that?"

    could become?

    Venice does ^ the city of Venice (which is now a part of Los Angeles) was created by Abbott Kinney who wanted Venice, CA to be like Venice, Italy w/ the canals and there was also a huge amusement park pier off the beach called Pacific something or other that burned down not long ago and has been since forgotten, you can see that a little in the movie Lords of Dogtown (dogtown is another word for the Venice/Santa Monica area) anyways, most of the canals of Venice have long since been filled in and developed over but a few remain w/ homes on them that poeple like artists and Julia Roberts and assholes like that live/rent on them

    I love it, too. I hate that most houses in my country are grey and white concrete. I love travelling to places where they have really colorful houses, like the Caribbean or South America or Africa. Makes you feel better, color, that is.

    There's colourful and then there's blinding neon. This is horrendous. I think the person who had it painted like that is an asshole because he's subjecting the whole neighbourhood to this viciously ugly and loud colour scheme while he sits inside with white walls.

    It would look more at home in Miami Beach than Los Angeles. It's too garish.
