Patterned Buildings – Yea or Nay?

Patterns are everywhere! The colorful expression is not only seen in clothing and interior decorating pieces, but covering entire exteriors of almost any building you can imagine. From a favorite coffee shop of Design*Sponge’s editor to an apartment building in New York, there are more than a few places that use patterns and paint to create a sense of individuality and culture. Here are a few from around the world. Click on each image to read more about the project, and be sure to leave your opinions on the style below! Do you like? Yea or nay?
