Canada's Magdalen Islands Home to Yves Beriault and Diane Deco

Yves Bériault and Diane Decoste followed a tradition in the Magdalen Islands in painting their home a bright(though not ridiculous) color. The home is contemporary but classic and it fits in perfectly in the seaside community.

The interior is beautifully highlighted with rich woods and arched ceilings. An unusual wood hallway connects the front and back of the home, giving this Magdalen Islands home a nautical feel.

Implications - The old tradition of painting your house a bright color was "born of maritime necessity." The fishermen used to paint their boats the same color as their homes and use their homes as "reference points when sailing." Yves Bériault and Diane Decoste's bright-blue house actually looks quite nice!
