Layers of color

To be honest I didn't expect this colorful building to be a bank! But it's a great unexpected inspiration we could use in lot's of public places. To me the touch of color makes it a very positive place. I thought I recognized the puffs that are flying around this time of year in the motifs on the ceiling and in an article from the contemporist I red: "the ceiling is adorned with dandelion puff motifs that seem to float and drift through the air. In Europe, there is a long and cherished custom of blowing on one of these fuzzy balls while secretly making a wish. Bits of fluffy down gently dance and frolic in the air, carried by the wind." 
Isn't that beautiful?
