I was talking about 'Gardens by the bay' which is in Singapore. I said: "There were flowers from practically all over the world. It was so colorful there wasn't a single color I didn't see."

Is it correct to say things like:

  1. There wasn't a single color I didn't see.
  2. There wasn't a single person I knew who could help me.
  3. There wasn't a single house that wasn't haunted.

If they are incorrect please let me know how to express this idea correctly.

These look correct to me. They use a double negative, but it is meaningful and correct.
