At street level, Toulouse is not the most beautiful of towns; the streets and sidewalks are tiny and crowded and covered with neon signs for stores and restaurants. But if you simply look up, you will see the most charming sight that continues to delight me every time I walk through Toulouse: row after row of colorful shutters and wrought iron balconies.
It’s just as appealing on the wealthy boulevards
as the simple streets.
Being la ville rose, the dominant colors are hues of red, pink, and white, yet blue, in all it’s shades, is a popular accent color.
Many times a day around the city, I find myself compelled to stop, look up, and admire the rows of windows.
