Texas Couple Remodels Home, Receive Death Threats

Keely and Peter Dubrova are a couple from Harris County, Texas. While remodeling, they decided to paint their house teal. Keely said, “I wanted to know this was my sanctuary."

After an anonymous realtor posted a picture of the Dubrova couple's home online asking for opinions on property value and aesthetic appeal, Keely said opinions ranged from “Everything from ‘white trash Californians, what are they doing here’ to ‘we want to hang them'." Only a week and a half after the HOA approved the color of the Dubrova's house, they received a letter asking them to re-paint it.

The realtor who initially posted the picture of the home said, “That [was] absolutely not my intention and I apologize that other people got out of hand with it and they shouldn’t have. I hope they’re ashamed of themselves.”

Peter said they reached out to their HOA to determine what they need to change. He stated, “So we are a little confused. Are we in compliance or not?” Neighbor Amanda Dennard said, “I think it’s cute. It does look cute like a doll house, but it doesn’t fit in the neighborhood.”

Theresa Nichols, another resident of the community, said, “I’m not too fond of the color of the house, but didn’t think they should be punished like that." Keely said, “This is our life. We live it for each other. We’ve worked hard to afford something like this and I feel like people are squashing our dream.”

The couple hopes to get answers at the next HOA meeting on October 26.
