Exterior paint color choices can be a controversial subject. We stumbled across a painted apartment complex that just might take the cake when we ran into Austin's Metropolis apartment complex on the East Side. Read more after the jump...

Though the paint job looks to have seen some years, every surface of this apartment complex is covered in artsy and Art Deco style paint patterns. There are buildings adorned in geometric styles and one building that looks entirely like it's painted with a leopard print.

Even hallways and some parts of the parking lots are covered in pattern and color! The effect is overall uplifting and bright. Along with the crazy paint patterns, there are other interesting details in this complex, like the old cars flanking the entrances and even a faux airplane coming out of one wall!

While it might be a little overboard to apply these sorts of treatments to your own home, Austin residents may get some inspiration from this artful paint job for smaller projects.

What do you think? Way too tacky or funky and fun? Have you ever seen an apartment complex before with such a unique paint job? Would you ever try something like this on a small part of your home for fun? Let us know!
