School buildings can often be dull, uninspiring and run down. This 1940s Paris school was heading that way until this amazing makeover and rainbow paint job by architects Palatre & Leclère. The results are astounding and are certainly an inspiration for the kids in the school and anyone looking to brighten up a dull space. Used sparingly in the home, this kind of overt-the-top decor can work wonders. And it will certainly get the neighbours talking. We found a similar project undertaken in a drab Australian car park too.
