It makes perfect sense that a fashion designer wouldn't settle for a pad with bland white walls and boring beige decor, but this colour-changing house designed by Italo Rota for Roberto Cavalli takes residential color creativity to a whole new level.

At this beautiful rainbow residence in the hills of Florence, Italy, Cavalli can change the color of his house to best suit his mood.

I wonder which color will inspire his next killer collection?
