Pink house on Bush Street
Mamie and John Sutton decided to paint their home on Toledo's north side pink for a number of reasons. The pair, who have lived in the house for about twenty years, wanted to honor Mr. Sutton's sister and friend, both of whom had breast cancer, and for their female grandchildren. Mr. Sutton said that part of his choice to paint the house was to make a statement in the neighborhood, which has a number of homes that are in disrepair. "I just stuck it to the neighborhood. I said, 'You can do better than this.'"
