vignette challenge

This week's prompt is:
building

Anyone can join, with a 50-word vignette in the comments. Your vignette does not have to include the prompt term.

My effort:
Artemise looked up at the building. How could anyone live in a home so gigantic and quaint at once? Enormous towers and porches and at least four stories. Windows round and oblong and rectangle. Every inch of wood covered in the detailed gingerbread carvings, and painted one of a dozen colors, raspberry and pastel green and purple and more.
At least they didn't clash, she told herself. There had been that house painted mustard yellow and trimmed with pure pink and blue and green. Even the memory of that one made her shudder.
Though this one came with the disadvantage of long skirts.
