Occasionally, when I’m driving by a building, if I think it’s interesting in some way, I’ll snap a photo of it. I took this picture over a year ago because I actually thought the way the “colour blocking” on this particular building actually looked good, especially because there’s not a lot of great architectural detail here. And the fixed element of the orange brick was also incorporated into the scheme. I thought they had done a good job.
I drove by the same motel a few weeks ago and noticed it had recently been painted.

A few years from now, anyone in the colour business will be able to determine when this was re-painted just by looking at the obvious trendy colours.
So, over to you, which colour scheme do you prefer? I did not choose them so it won’t bother me which one you vote for, you obviously know which one I like.
When I posted these commercial buildings months ago, no one was really all that impressed. Do you vote for colour or for the gray?
