Painted Buildings

One of the most easily dreary outdoor presences is often the large apartment building. Designed to hold hundreds, if not thousands, of families as efficiently as possible, beautiful design often takes a back seat. What about this take, then, on beautifying such a mammoth structure, and giving it a little bit of joy and character?

These colors are bright! Very bright! This apartment building in Russia is anything but run-of-the-mill with huge, colorful murals painted all over the facade of the structures. Crazy Junkyard found these images on a blog that reads all in Russian, so there isn't a lot of information about the building. But the visual information is enough for us!

We love the idea that such a large building that could easily become prison-like and depressing has been made into a canvas for such beautiful imagery. While we wouldn't necessarily do this to our own home, the idea of murals and ornamental imagery makes us happy. There are many more smile-inducing images of this unique building on both Crazy Junkyard and the original blog.
