Eye Candy Friday: Øvre Holmegate





Øvre Holmegate used to be a particularly grey and dreary street. Until one of the tenants had an idea. It took four years to get all the landlords, and the municipality, to agree, but this is what it looks like today. A colour palette for the entire street was made by artist Craig Flannagan.

Norwegians are amazing people. I can't think of anyone who would work for SEVEN years to get agreement to paint a bunch of buildings. We Americans would give up after seven weeks...
