The one on the right looks brand new.

I'd love to live in either ... love old buildings ... and It's Rome! Thanks for sharing.

Judie said...

I like them both. How half the time on one side and half on the other!! Win,win!!

Isn't it amazing how a coat of paint can change people's perceptions and observations about a building.

paige said...

I'd love to be able to afford either!

fredamans said...

Yellow.
Beautiful shot!

Jackie said...

I think I like the shutters on the right more .

So Roma!

Stef said...

I would say the one on the right. Very cool picture. But I would hate to be ther person who has to climb up the scaffolding to paint the dang place.

H said...

The one on the right looks very smart, but the one on the left looks more authentic. I'd have to decide according to what they looked like inside, which is a total cop out, I know!

Natasha said...

I think I would like the one on the right...I am far too pragmatic these days and couldn't stand the thought of renovating after all the renovating I have recently had to do!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I adore Rome and can't wait to get back there. HOpe you had a great time :) ciao bella!

mle said...

If I actually could GO to Rome I'd take either!! but the left side wins my heart : )

Jingle said...

The improvement of renovation is obvious here.
lovely shot.

They each have their charms. I wonder if the one on the left has updated plumbing and such? If so, I'd probably take that one. Looks like it needs some work, though. As said above, Rome? I won't be picky!

Sue said...

Maybe the one on the left, but just by a hair!

=)

Donnie said...

Uh, my...I have to decide....I really like them both though. Great photo.

Theresa said...

Love the left!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

They are both just lovely...

I'd have to go with the one on the left..it matches me a little better!

lol

Joanne said...

The one on the left! Rome is fabulous, I have to go back and revisit the romans....

Y. Ikeda said...

I prefer dark colors. So It could be to the left one.

JM said...

Funny I have done the same with two brand new restored buildings in Lisbon some time ago. :-)

Pondside said...

I'd be happy in either one!

J Bar said...

Love this side by side shot.

VP said...

I am not so sure I would like to live in Rome, it is beautiful but too much chaotic, even for an Italian!

Jenny said...

Renovation! What a cool word!

Such a fun link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "R".

I enjoyed your clever take on this letter!

A+

I like the older-looking one on the left. It has more character!
