What is a great way to turn concrete into something beautiful to look at? Color! That is exactly what these apartment buildings have had added to their front facades. These pictures were originally posted on a Russian blog by Sturman.

I love that the pictures all reflect nature, illuminating the combination of urban living and mother nature.

Implications - Though architecture on its own can be a visual marvel, there isn't often an element of fun or fantasy involved in everyday structures. These photos of building makeovers help realize the effect that some colorful paint can have on the look of a town or region. This technique can be implemented by ad agencies looking for new media spaces.
