Willemstad, Curacao

Willemstad, the capital of Northern Antilles, is situated on the Curacao coast. The city has a highly charged culture, but probably it is not the only thing which makes it so colourful. In the 1800s, when the Dutch had authority in that area, the then governor used to say that the reflection of the sun off the boring white washed walls gave him severe migraines. So, a verdict was given by the then governor that nothing in the city should be left all white. Since then, Willemstad has been declared as one of the most colourful cities. But we can’t say much on the issue that whether it helped with the governor’s migraines or not.

Juzcar, Spain

Juzcar from Spain was painted all blue in 2011. Sony Pictures asked the residents of the town to paint their homes blue. This was a part of a promotional bombardment for the movie, Smurfs. After the movie got released, the residents were requested to paint their homes back. Since the blue-ness was getting a lot of attention from tourists, the people of that area were relishing it, and hence decided that they won’t be changing the new colour scheme.
