This Family Actually Painted Their Home Like the House from "Up"

Pin It
A Santa Clara, Calif. couple's efforts to add a little pizzazz to their home has left neighbors heated.

Hosam Haggog and Fatima Rahman tried to make their kids' dreams come true by renovating an old Victorian home to resemble the house in the animated flick "Up." Colors and all--and it took them two years to accomplish the feat.

"[Our daughters] love the movie Up and we just thought we'd give them something fun to be proud of and actually all the kids in the neighborhood really love the colors," Hosam told NBC Bay Area. The key word here is that the kids love the colors. Not their parents, who own the homes nearby.

"I don't think it fits in," neighbor Lou Faria told the outlet about the home. "It really, in my opinion, is atrocious that this Victorian is a gracious old lady and it's being painted up to look like a clown." Most of the homes on the same street are more than 100 years old, and the residents there take pride (obviously) in preserving the original look and style of their Victorian homes.

Well, at least they didn't top the home with balloons.
